WESTAMPTON, N.J. (April 4, 2018) – Weego, a leading manufacturer of portable power products including jump starters and rechargeable battery packs, announced today that TowBoatU.S. has selected Weego as their preferred jump starter.
“To be acknowledged by this world-class, professional organization of towing and recovery captains is an awesome validation of our products,” said Gerry Toscani, CEO of Weego. “TowBoatU.S. is driven to providing its members with exceptional service while on the water through their 24/7 service. At Weego, we have a similar goal. Whether you are an existing BoatU.S. member looking for a cool multifunctional tool that’s packed with features to help you stay charged, powered up and brightly lit, or you are shopping for a portable jump starter to get you quickly back to shore, we have the power that you need to boat safely and continue to have a great time doing it.”
To launch the partnership with 300 TowBoatU.S. locations across the U.S. and encourage on-board use, TowBoatU.S. operators will receive a discount on purchase at myweego.com. This program is in addition to the Members Savings’ program provided to BoatU.S. members. A national Weego advertising campaign featuring TowBoatU.S. captains has been implemented for all of 2018 with BoatU.S. Magazine, reaching over one-half million BoatU.S. members.
“Each year, our BoatU.S. 24-hour dispatch centers receive more than 70,000 requests from boaters for on-the-water assistance,” said Adam Wheeler, Vice President of Towing Services, BoatU.S. “The number two reason they call is for a dead battery, translating to thousands of battery jumps every year. We needed a reliable, rechargeable power pack that worked every time, all of the time. After testing at some of our busiest locations, Weego 66 met that high standard so we’ve chosen to make Weego our preferred jump starter for our fleet of 600 towboats.”
