Less than a year after opening its first office in Asia, Norwegian e-navigation specialist NAVTOR is expanding in the region again - this time with a dedicated presence in Japan. NAVTOR Japan K.K. will help the firm, known for its simple, efficient and cost effective ENC distribution solutions, continue to roll out its European success worldwide, securing an important foothold in this key shipping arena.
“The importance of Japan to shipping, and to suppliers that serve the industry, can’t be overstated,” comments Tor Svanes, NAVTOR CEO. “The market is established, stable and mature, but at the same time defined by owners and operators that invest in state-of-the-art technology, while focusing on absolutely optimal efficiency and operational security.
“It’s an environment that is tailor made for NAVTOR and its e-navigation solutions.”
