Company profile and history of Weatherdock AG
Weatherdock AG is a leading manufacturer of electrical equipment for maritime navigation and safety purposes based in Nuremberg, Germany. The devices are mainly used in recreational boating but are also increasingly utilized in commercial shipping. The company was founded in 2003 by the three board members as a privately owned public corporation. All of our products are developed in Nuremberg and they are produced at other locations but only in Germany. The company Weatherdock is managed by its three board members Alfred Kotouczek-Zeise, Jürgen Zimmermann and Wolfgang Werner.
