Article in Three Sheets NW about IRG and SmartPlug's donation

Not only does it make great products, Seattle-based SmartPlug Systems is doing good work, too.

Three Sheets Northwest magazine, 17-May-2012.

The company recently donated shore power cables and inlets to International Rescue Group, a nonprofit organization based in Alameda, Calif., that provides support and humanitarian aid to coastal communities impacted by disasters. The group coordinates with other emergency and rescue agencies and encourages cruising boaters to join its network so they can help out when disaster strikes.

“International Rescue Group is a great group of people who are working hard to help others,” Aaron Bronson, SmartPlug sales rep, said in a release. “This group helps survivors all over the world and we’re proud to help further this cause.”

SmartPlug, launched in 2007, makes shore power systems designed to replace the conventional twist-type power cord connectors used on most boats. Its patented system uses straight pins, a sleeve configuration, weatherproof seals and a multiple locking system to ensure a stable connection and safeguard against loose connections and corrosion, the two leading causes of connection-related fires.

The company currently offers 30- and 50-amp products.
