The name "Glendinning Controls" has become well established in most inland houseboat circles over the years, but now the company is expanding its presence to cover the Mid-Atlantic seaboard as well. Glendinning has just named Engines 1 of Portsmouth, Virginia, as a full line distributor.  Glendinning company vice president David Wollard made the announcement.

"Engines 1 has a solid reputation and a long history as an engine supplier," Wollard said.  "I feel confident our partnership will be beneficial and long-term."

A division of Western Branch Diesel since 1999, Engines 1 has been supplying engines and parts to the industry since 1963.  The company started as a sales department for a Virginia shipyard, and it continued to grow over the years to its present state as a premier supplier for the eastern seaboard under the wing of Western Branch Diesel.

According to Tim Walters, manager of Engines 1, Glendinning systems perform consistently, and the company's commitment to service and quality make them a perfect fit with Engines 1.  "Knowing Glendinning's service reputation with their integrity made it an easy decision to distribute their products," he said.  "We look forward to moving Glendinning into our territory knowing we have their full support."

Glendinning offers automatic engine synchronizers, Complete Control electronic transmission and throttle controls, high-quality engine and throttle control cables, and mechanical drive adapters and flexible cables for synchronizers and other tachometer applications as well as the CableMaster automatic shore cord winder.
