New Worldwide Distributor Network
For EMD Power Products —Free Literature Available—
A new worldwide distributor net- work that will sell and service EMD engines, generators and motors in the marine, industrial and oil drill- ing markets has been established by the Electro-Motive Division (EMD) of General Motors to increase flexi- bility and improve customer ser- vice.
Distributors, with their autho- rized parts sales and service centers, will provide local availability of gen- uine EMD parts and rebuild compo- nents in assigned areas of responsi- bility. They will handle all direct sales and field service activities, in- cluding technical assistance and "hands on" maintenance.
Distributors will market EMD power products, engines and acces- sories. They will take basic compo- nents, furnished by EMD, and cus- tom assemble them for specific ap- plications. This will provide flexibil- ity in customizing designs to meet specific customer requirements for
EMD products. Basic components development will continue to be handled by EMD's central engineer- ing staff, thereby ensuring custom- ers will be getting state-of-the-art equipment.
An EMD sales and service staff for power products will be head- quartered in LaGrange, 111. This group will provide sales, technical service, and engineering support to distributors.
Most of the distributors, who are assigned a specific territory of sales and service responsibility (see illus- tration for details), will carry both
EMD and Detroit Diesel Corpora- tion products, providing customers a full line of engines with a broad power range.
Kelly Jones, EMD power prod- ucts business manager, said, "There are a lot of companies in the mar- ketplace right now representing themselves as suppliers of EMD products. It's important for power products customers to know that
EMD's new distributors and their assigned parts sales and service cen- ters are the only ones authorized by
GM to sell genuine EMD prod- ucts."

When there's work to be done, the boat has to be up to the task. It has to take the punishment and carry a big load, safe and smoothly. It has to be a Zodiac rigid-hulled inflatable. For any job from piloting to transport to dive and salvage, there's a Zodiac RIB to handle it. From 15' to 24', with inboard or outboard, it can reach speeds up to 40 knots and carry 24 passengers. Zodiac invented the inflatable, and Zodiac perfected it. For speed, rugged- ness, stability and seakeeping in any kind of sea, it has to be a Zodiac. I ZODIAC
