Capabilities Statement

 

Since the 1990’s, Ocean (Caribbean) has assisted small brands to deliver. The initial major brand opportunity was a product line created in-house called Tiv Perfume. The client for the line was a $12 billion retail store operation with 64 locations in the Eastern United States. During this first major engagement, demand grew to 800% of the original purchase order. This level of increased demand can bury a small business, but Ocean (Caribbean) was agile enough to scale as needed. For a giant retail customer like Hecht’s Department Stores (now Macy’s) becoming a successful vendor is a very complex process. We want all our customers to know they can depend on us.

Electric Vehicles represent one of the most crucial pivots toward the future of transportation. The federal government has set a national goal of half of all new vehicles sold in the U. S. being electric by 2030. During these early stages, we are pleased to be able to offer Electric Vehicle Supply Equipment (EVSE) to include Charging Plugs, Charging Cables, Charging Boxes and Adapters.
