Alphatron Marine and the Japanese JRC (Japan Radio Company) established a far-reaching strategic partnership on 1 January 2014. This unique combination of expertise offers a one-stop-shopping concept for navigation, communication, automation and complete ship’s bridges: the best in ship’s electronics by JRC, Alphatron’s own, and other, complementary products and our role as system integrator.
Shipbuilders can now purchase every product from a single supplier that caters for the entire system, from maritime PABX board to wind meter and from radar to bridge console. If preferred, everything can be delivered prefab from one of our workshops around the world. In addition to products, we offer advice, engineering, a 24/7 helpdesk, life-time support via the global JRC/Alphatron service network and remote maintenance via a SAT link. What remains unchanged is that JRC will continue as manufacturer to produce and sell JRC products and Alphatron will complement these products with our own Alphaline range and the products of other suppliers with whom we have worked for years.
Growing Asian market
This combination of expertise is unique in the world of maritime electronics. It should be underlined that Alphatron will continue to be product independent. Luuk Vroombout, CEO Alphatron Marine Group: ‘The intensification of our partnership has been prompted by the ever growing Asian market and the growth of Alphatron’s own product range and supplementary services in recent years. JRC and Alphatron have always been complementary and have been represented jointly at trade fairs for a number of years. As a manufacturer of 100 years’ standing, JRC makes the best quality products. Alphatron knows the customers well and has been a system integrator with an eye for ergonomics and full concepts for 25 years. This unique combination results in high-value solutions that reassure customers, from shipyards to shipowners.’
