The U.S. Small Business Administration, in partnership with the New Hampshire Bankers Association, recently awarded the 2017 New Hampshire Small Business Exporter of the Year to HydroComp, Inc.
Founded in 1984 by Managing Director Jill Aaron and Technical Director Donald MacPherson, HydroComp is in the specific business of applied hydrodynamics, offering its maritime software and consultancy services for hull and propeller analysis and design. This focus shaped a line of naval architectural software packages beginning with its flagship product NavCad, and now includes PropExpert, PropCad, SwiftCraft, and most recently, PropElements. HydroComp has been actively exporting for most of its 33 years.
“In recent years we have been working even more closely with the State of New Hampshire International Trade Resource Center and the U.S. Commercial Service,” said Aaron. “Because of this relationship, we have been able to delve into more emerging and challenging global markets. Their assistance and resources, such as the State Trade and Export Promotion Grant Program, have created valuable opportunities for us.”
Naval architects, marine engineers, yacht designers & ship builders, owners & operators, academics, propulsion equipment suppliers, governments, and militaries use HydroComp’s products and services worldwide.
