Leading systems specialist Fischer Panda UK has continued its expansion with the appointment of a new Marine Sales Executive, Robert Tuck.
With a strong background in the automotive sector and a keen interest in engines and electronics, Robert joins the Dorset-based firm as demand continues to increase for Fischer Panda’s product range in the leisure, commercial and OEM maritime markets. He will focus on further expanding sales for Fischer Panda’s generators, electric propulsion, watermakers, air-conditioning, power systems, and monitoring and control solutions, as well as managing, maintaining and growing existing customers and accounts, dealing with incoming enquiries and liaising closely with the engineering team.
Robert said: “I have always been interested in the marine industry, from small sailboats to large superyachts, and have a technical outlook, so it is great to be able to combine my passions and turn it into a prosperous career. With a fantastic track record and market-leading products, Fischer Panda UK is the perfect place for me to learn from the expert team around me and help the company reach even greater heights in the marine sector. I look forward to an exciting future with this growing firm.”
As well as expanding its sales team, Fischer Panda UK has increased the number of certified technicians to ensure superior technical support, expertise and aftercare for its growing customer base.

Chris Fower, Sales and Marketing Director for Fischer Panda UK, said: “We welcome Robert to the team during an extremely positive time for the company, with our product portfolio expanding and some exciting customer projects progressing well.
