KARL DOSE - Power for Ships

Founded in 1920 as a specialist for ship electrics, we have consistently expanded our portfolio to other maritime sectors. It ranges from lighting for ships, floodlights and searchlights to container sockets and equipment for electrical installations and is designed for the special requirements of shipping, the navy and hazardous areas.

Whether for merchant ships or special boats, cruise ships or yachts, sea rescue vessels or the navy - we are the competent partner for shipping. Our products are not only distinguished by their first-class quality. They are tested by man and nature and thus ensure a safe supply of light and electricity. Neighbouring sectors such as the offshore sector, port management or industry also benefit from our high-quality portfolio, which is rounded off by certified products for hazardous areas.
