“After visiting the Dockmate booths at IBEX and METS in 2019, we became very impressed with the Dockmate product line. Following METS 2022, we were able to renew our intentions to work together and are confident that boaters throughout the region will be very satisfied with the low-speed manoeuvrability that their remote docking solutions provide. We look forward to expanding the brand throughout Taiwan.”
