Navigation companies merge
UK digital navigation company ChartCo has merged with the Canadian navigation solutions provider, Marine Press.
The move will result in the creation of a new company, OneOcean, that will offer a range of navigation and compliance solutions for the maritime sector.
“Following the success of three recent acquisitions, we have been looking to further expand our business,” said Martin Taylor, ChartCo CEO. “We identified Marine Press as a like-minded partner that would complement our own business and expand the offerings to our growing international client base.”
He continued: “The new OneOcean business will reflect the collaboration, knowledge and expertise of both companies and build on our individual strengths of research and development, service and support and territorial reach.”
Nicholas Bourque, Marine Press president, added: “OneOcean will have, by far, the largest R&D capability in the sector and will offer the most innovative solutions for maritime compliance and digital navigation.
“The technology roadmap that the combined group is working on is really exciting, building on ‘best in class’ solutions from both organisations and will take ship management into a new digital era.”
