ENGLEWOOD, Colo. -- Jeppesen, a Boeing subsidiary, has launched Jeppesen Marine, a new business unit that leverages Jeppesen's 70-plus years of experience in the aeronautical information business to provide the commercial marine market with similar digital navigation and information solutions, the company said in a release.
"The move into the marine market is a natural for us as a great deal of synergies exist between the aviation and marine markets,” said Tim Sukle, senior vice president, Jeppesen Marine. Today Jeppesen provides worldwide data from the ground up to our aviation customers, and we intend to offer the same data and solutions to the maritime communities."
"Much of Jeppesen's long-term strategic growth will come from markets outside of our core aviation business," said Mark Van Tine, Jeppesen president and COO. "The launch of Jeppesen Marine is a great example of our future beginning to take shape, as we now look to new and exciting opportunities that will sustain our aggressive growth plans in the coming years."
The Nobeltec line of products will continue to be developed and offered to the recreational boating market. Included in Nobeltec's full line of electronic marine navigation solutions are data services, award-winning software, radar solutions, sounders, and more.
