SeaStar Solutions Engine Control System

The SeaStar Solutions brand takes control of online technical manual publisher Seloc. Soon another service for marine mechanics workshops in France.

An offer of technical manuals

SeaStar Solutions, a US manufacturer of mechanical and electronic engine control systems (formerly Teleflex Marine), marine engine and transmission parts, announced the acquisition of Pennsylvania-based Seloc Publishing. The latter publishes the technical manuals and online databases Seloc Online, Seloc Pro and Counterman.

Seloc manuals are more than 40 years old and offer plans, exploded views, photos and illustrations, but also detailed instructions for routine maintenance and repair of marine engines and boats.

Helping SeaStar Solutions Customers

Tom Douglass, Vice President of SeaStar Solutions is excited about the new service he will be able to offer his customers. "Adding Seloc to SeaStar Solutions' business portfolio is perfectly consistent. This strengthens our Sonar online parts service and allows us to offer our customers an even more complete parts supply solution. We go one step further by providing installation instructions to make the job as simple as searching, ordering and installing."

Soon available in France

Seloc Editions will continue to work independently in the near future, while SeaStar Solutions will integrate Seloc information into its Sierra database.

Benoît Massard-Combe, Marketing Director of Vidal Diffusion Marine, one of SeaStar Solutions' French distributors, is delighted with this announcement and says that these online technical information mines should soon be available in France.
