Coxmate was founded in 2002 to provide a new generation of electronics for rowing. Peter Hodson, the founder, a rower from school and university and more recently in Masters, found himself maintaining the electronics equipment for his daughter’s school. This frustrating experience, coupled with over 20 years experience in the development and manufacture of electronics, prompted the development of the Coxmate range.

Peter carefully analysed all aspects of existing systems and rowing needs, especially in schools. And from this research he started to develop the Coxmate range of products.

The resulting products bring rowing electronics to a new level of performance. Coxmate has a strong emphasis on durability, ease of use and ease of maintenance. The products are designed by rowers, for rowers.

In only a few rowing seasons, significant sales growth has been achieved and distributors have been appointed in many countries around the world. The product range includes units for both coxed boats and coxless boats.

Peter's innovative nature has led to Coxmate delivering world "firsts" for the sport: First micro-impeller for coxless boats; first 4-speaker harness; first magnetic electrical contacts for controllers; first integral GPS speed measurement. Coxmate will continue to innovate as new products are designed.
