JRC | Alphatron Marine announces the renewal of the partnership with YDK Technologies

Press releases

JRC | Alphatron Marine announces the renewal of the partnership with YDK. The renewal of the partnership will cover a distributor agreement for both sales and service. This enables YDK and Alphatron Marine to support their customers seamlessly in today’s global trade.

YDK, formerly known as Yokogawa, and JRC | Alphatron Marine decided to expand the collaboration not only in Rotterdam, but also in other European countries. This to support the global distribution of YDK and to strengthen our support to vessels located in the North Sea area.

As a Japanese manufacturer, YDK is very quality driven for autopilots, gyro compasses and magnetic speedlogs.  Like JRC, they are incredibly competitive in the high seas market of large cargo vessels such as container ships, bulk carriers, and tankers.

With the renewal of our partnership, we believe that with Alphatron Marine as a trading arm of the JRC Group, supporting multiple premium brands for product sales and services, we are expanding globally and aiming to provide a one-stop-shop service for ship owners in the high seas market.
