About Us

Why Waters & David Co.
With a four man agency, Waters & David Company provides exceptional coverage in a large geographic territory encompassing the Central South/Gulf market.  The Waters & David group brings extensive knowledge to both the customer and the manufacturer in the form of close familiarity with the product and the market.

We maximize the principal’s penetration into the marketplace primarily through wholesale distribution and direct OEM sales.  While heavily involved in the marine industry our reps are not limited to that market.  Lines represented by Waters & David are also sold to Trailer, Industrial, Safety, Oil & Gas, Aviation, and Utility accounts.

For over 30 years Waters & David has developed both working and personal relationships with the key decision makers at each of our accounts.

We stand by our principals and vice versa.  The fact we have represented over three quarters of our lines for more than 20 years attests to both our dedication and long term commitment to work with each other.
