Ascenz Marorka’s mission remains more than ever to provide the ship-owners and the charterers around the world with the most comprehensive, innovative and reliable solutions that meet customers’ requirements, by offering a complete range of solutions, from the sensors to the modular software platform, in addition to high-value services provided by the group’s experts.


“We are proud to announce the launch of Ascenz Marorka that represents a new milestone in the implementation of our digital strategy. With Ascenz Marorka, our ambition is to combine the digital expertise of our Group more effectively and to provide even more value to our customers in their journey for efficiency and sustainability”, said Philippe Berterottière, Chairman and CEO of GTT.

“The new brand will put us in a stronger position to design and distribute superior solutions to our customers and meet the evolving requirements of the maritime industry. We are witnessing a great moment in the adoption of digital technology to meet the operational and environmental objectives. It is the right time for us to join forces and offer the best combination of solutions and services to our customers”, added Anouar Kiassi, Vice-President Digital and Information of GTT.
