NEWBURYPORT, Mass. — Ocean Signal, the U.K. manufacturer of marine communication and safety products, which include EPIRBs, SARTs and VHF radios, will open its own U.S. sales operation this month as Ocean Signal America.
The new company, headed up by CEO Talbot Pratt, will be based in Newburyport, Mass., the manufacturer reported in a recent statement. It will share facilities with Digital Yacht and Digital Deep Sea, which manufacture a complementary range of marine electronic products including AIS, chart plotters and marine PCs, for both commercial and leisure markets.
“The US office will be an extension of Ocean Signal's European operation and will allow us to offer a complete service from sales and marketing right through to service and support for our US dealer and distributor network,” Pratt said.
