Seatronics, an Acteon company and leader in marine electronic equipment sales and rentals, has partnered with Teledyne RD Instruments Inc. to sell its marine measurement and navigation products. Customers in the Middle East and South America will benefit from a sales representation and distribution agreement signed in August.
Harry Maxfield, vice president sales and marketing, Teledyne RD Instruments, said, “We have a strong, long-standing relationship with Seatronics, who have a great deal of experience with our products and applications. We have always been impressed by Seatronics’ knowledge and professionalism, and we hope this enhanced working relationship will enable us to build upon Seatronics’ presence and reputation in regions that can be challenging for us to address due to time zone differences.”
Seatronics will sell Teledyne RD Instruments’ Acoustic Doppler Current Profilers (ADCPs) exclusively in Saudi Arabia, UAE, Qatar, Oman and Bahrain; and represent the company for Doppler Velocity Logs (DVLs) non-exclusively in Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Oman and Bahrain. Seatronics do Brasil Ltda will sell DVLs in Brazil on the same, non-exclusive basis.
Adil Ali, international product sales manager at Seatronics, said, “Seatronics is a long-established user of Teledyne RD Instruments’ equipment and has multiple Acoustic Doppler Current Profilers and Doppler Velocity Logs in its equipment rental pool. This means that we can easily transfer our in-house technical expertise to our clients.
“This partnership will enable our existing and potential clients to gain a higher level of pre-purchase technical advice and post-sale support in the regions this agreement covers.”
The latest agreement reinforces Seatronics’ position as a global force in the sale and support of Teledyne products. The company already represents Teledyne BlueView globally, offering its 2D and 3D multibeam imaging sonar equipment.
