New Wire Marine Now Serving OEM Switch Panel Market
New Wire Marine, a marine electrical system design company, is entering the OEM marine switch panel market following its purchase of new Computer Numerical Control (CNC) equipment.
Charleston, SC - New Wire Marine, the Charleston, S.C. based marine electrical system producers has entered the OEM marine switch panel market following their purchase of a new Computer Numerical Control (CNC) tool. This high-tech, computer controlled cutting tool makes it possible for the New Wire Marine to offer the DYI market affordable marine rocker switch and customized panels in any shape on 2D surfaces with stunning graphics and detailed logos and text engraved into their switch panels. It also is key in the company’s ability to produce high-end custom marine rocker switch plates for the small to medium sized boat builders that have been neglected by switch panel manufacturers in the past.
Small builders will find that New Wire Marine does not require minimum quantities, can accept requests for variations in panel design (such as switch label and position) and will even help a client completely re-design a panel layout. Marine hopes to fill a very large gap in the OEM (original equipment manufacturer) switch panel market by becoming an affordable vendor and leading supplier of custom switch panels to smaller boat builders. Most vendors in the business will only supply large quantities of a single panel and cannot offer the same level of customized logo engraving and backlighting processing that the engineers at New Marine have developed.
“We are really excited to bring logo engraving and backlighting capability to our boat manufacturer customers,” said New Wire Marine owner, Eric Steele. “So far the feedback we’ve been getting is extremely positive. We’ve been helping the DYI marketplace for years and I’m excited to be able to offer these great products to commercial boat builders,” said Steele.
The new CNC equipment held obvious promise for the company and bolstered its move into the commercial switch plate market, making it possible for New Wire Marine to cut switch panel substrates in house produce rapid prototyping and offer fast turnaround times on custom products. “This machine is incredible; accurate to four thousandths of an inch,” said Steele. “The products that our reverse engraving process is putting out have truly been incredible. I’m impressed every time I see a part pulled out of the machine"
Steele said the transition was seamless for him, in part due to his experience as both an electrical engineer and System of Systems engineer in the shipbuilding industry. He is also an avid boat restoration hobbyist and his passion for it continues to drive his company’s push to develop innovative products. New Wire Marine plans to introduce more than 75 new custom and semi-custom switch panel layouts, quadrupling its current inventory. These layouts, said Steele, will be offered in matte black, white and a carbon fiber looking material, as well as other colors and styles for custom orders.
While New Wire Marine appears to be on the cutting edge of the competition on the technology front, the company also has embraced the same forward thinking approach to customer service, creating, for example, a new web page where customers can obtain an instant online quote for a custom-made boat switch panel.
New Wire Marine’s goal to serve the OEM market is backed by its ability to offer the commercial sector competitive pricing and quick turnaround, which is continuing to raise its national profile. For the small to medium sized boat builder, New Marine can offer engraved and backlight logos and boat names into the switch panels at prices that no other supplier in the industry can offer them. The company’s product line also extends beyond boating, as the company will make panels for any industry, including RV’s, ATV’s and golf carts.
