We aim to provide our clients with reliable maritime services around the world and we aim to work with the best companies in the world to achieve that. Furuno is a strong brand and we value being a long-term partner in several countries around the world. Furuno is a vital part of our portfolio.

“Imtech Marine has been one of our partners of great importance throughout the years of cooperation of both companies. Our products and solutions, together with a powerful sales force and a fully capable Imtech Marine service team, have been working in tandem on a number of projects worldwide, and we have succeeded in achieving customer satisfaction from the industry together. Looking back at what we have contributed to the industry, it is natural the amicable working relations between the two companies should continue and be further extended in the future”, stated Muneyuki Koike, MD of Furuno.
