SEPTEMBER 13, 2018 — Radio Holland is certainly a well known name in the maritime industry with a history that stretches back more than 100 years to the age of the telegram. Today, its brand is synonymous with innovative maritime communication and navigation solutions, products, and service.
For more than half of its history—55 years—Radio Holland has partnered with Furuno on distributing its equipment. At the recent SMM 2018 trade fair in Hamburg, the two companies extended their partnership with distributorship agreements.
Radio Holland is the distributor for Furuno in The Netherlands, UAE, Egypt and South Africa. In addition, Radio Holland is a dealer of Furuno in USA, Belgium, Portugal, Curaçao, Trinidad & Tobago, Hong Kong/China and Germany. The longstanding partnership involves the supply, installation and service of Furuno Navigation and Communication equipment.
However, just as the marine industry is undergoing a transformation driven by increasing automation and digitalization, so, too is Radio Holland undergone a number of changes.
Marine Log recently sat down with Erik Van der Noordaa, CEO of the RH Marine Group, and Fergus Campbell, Director of Services, North America, Radio Holland USA (photo inset at right), at SMM 2018 to discuss those changes, as well as the company’s Global Service Network, its latest innovations in service calls, class surveys, and remote monitoring, as well as its ability to support the cruise industry with turnkey solutions for bridge upgrades under strict deadlines.
