We are celebrating our 20 year anniversary and offer stability, competitive pricing and solid top-notch programs with a full complement of products. We want to earn the business we conduct everyday by working for our members. We are very impressed with the response from dealers that are looking to make a change or bring additional training to their dive centers.”
Merz, added, “The team at World HQ and in the field is always growing and improving and now we have all the right personnel to service the demand that is out there – as a matter of fact, we are excited and looking forward to it.”
