Alphatron Marine Belgium Opens a New Office
Alphatron Marine is pleased to announce the acquisition of a new office and warehouse space. The new office is located in Zwijndrecht (Belgium), in an easily-accessible central location. The new building was necessary to support the growth of Alphatron Marine. The official opening took place on the 9th of November 2016, although the building has already been in operational use since September.
Alphatron Marine Belgium has found a central location in Zwijndrecht, situated on Nieuwe Weg, a stone’s throw away from the port of Antwerp. The building is easily accessible from the port and the Deurganckdok, which is directly connected to the North Sea. Alphatron Marine will serve its customers in Belgium and France from this new location. The old office in Meerdonk has been closed, since the company moved into the new office building. Alphatron Marine also opened an office in Le Havre in order to serve and support the southern region.
Alphatron Marine as a one-stop-shop
Alphatron Marine Belgium is part of a group of companies governed by Alphatron Marine. Together, they act as importer, producer, developer and service provider of high-quality navigation, communication and automation systems. Besides this, the company provides specialised IT solutions. In order to operate fully as a system integrator, Alphatron Marine made a strategic partnership with JRC (Japan Radio Company). A ‘one-stop-shop’ concept was introduced, with complementary products. Where Belgium was first seen as a focal point, the branch has grown in recent years to a location that commercially contributes to the success of Alphatron Marine. Five service engineers support customers in the following markets: fishing, offshore, maritime, dredging and government.
Besides an extensive private product line, the AlphaLine, the brand also represents, amongst others: Sailor-Cobham, Yokogawa, Skipper, McMurdo, Jotron, Intellian, Transas, Saab, Hatteland, Netwave and Rutter. Alphatron Marine Belgium is the official Belgian importer of the brand JRC. This branch handles a large portion of the service and sales in the Belgian ports.
On the 9th of November 2016, the new location in Zwijndrecht was officially opened, followed by speeches from Erik van Boom (Country Manager), Luuk Vroombout (CEO Alphatron Marine) and Marc van Peel (port alderman and chairman of Antwerp Port Authority).
