Appointed in 2017, TMI has an ever-growing order book and list of customers in and around Southeast Asia’s waterways. It has seen vast success in the commercial and governmental sectors, proving the Cox Marine V8 to be the safest, cleanest, and most practical alternative propulsion solution.

“The high-performance Cox Marine diesel outboard is a safe, innovative product that fills a gap in the conventional outboard market. We see great market potential for it in Asia and thank Cox Marine for entrusting us to represent the brand on a wider scale in Asia,” said Alan Ow, Managing Director of TMI.

Ian Hubbard, Cox Marine’s Regional Director for APAC and the Middle East, expressed his delight about the renewal and expansion with TMI, stating, “We are thrilled to continue what has been an extremely prosperous partnership with Tractors Machinery International.

“The renewed relationships with partners of TMI’s standard continue to demonstrate our commitment to provide a globally expansive premium level of service.” Ian Hubbard visited TMI’s head office last week with Cox Marine CEO Gavin Wesson and Commercial Operations Director Gemma Crocker to commemorate the milestone expansion.
