ChartWorld Acquires Maritime Services
ChartWorld announced the acquisition of Maritime Services Ltd. in Vancouver as the latest addition to the maritime digital navigation group.
Steven van de Schootbrugge, ChartWorld’s CEO, commented, “We have seen double-digit growth in the North American region in recent years due to our navigation solutions that cover everything from hardware as a service, SAAS, electronic charts, support and service. Our customers can ensure their ECDIS and digital navigation systems are automatically updated and are always compliant with shore-based oversight, for one all-in monthly fee.
“Now is the right time to strengthen our commitment and on-the-ground presence in this key region, and Vancouver is also the perfect location to strengthen our global support function. Expanding our presence to the Western seaboard time zone now allows us to provide fully staffed 24-hour client support when combined with our other global offices.
