Furuno Norway AS joins MaxSea’s distribution network

Furuno technicianFuruno Norway AS becomes the Norwegian distributor of MaxSea navigation and fishery systems developed by the French company MaxSea International.

As of May 22, the distribution rights for all products have been transferred from the until now distributor MaxSea Norway AS to Furuno Norway AS. At the same time, two of MaxSea Norway’s three employees are transferred to Furuno Norway, while the third will continue to develop MaxSea Norway for other products and markets under a new name.

MaxSea has recently launched a new version of its navigation system called MaxSea TimeZero, which offers full integration with Furuno’s existing products (radar, fish finders). The rapprochement is therefore quite natural, and will provide clear synergies that will benefit both customers and MaxSea/Furuno partners.

Customers will have access to complete high-tech systems from one supplier integrating all together fishing plotter, weather data, sounder, radar, AIS, engine information, etc. In addition to new features and a very user-friendly interface, the new MaxSea TimeZero also has a built-in 3D mapping database of the seabed in all relevant areas of fishing activity, based on an extensive database that users have collected and shared over several years. All products will be distributed through the established network of dealers all along the Norwegian coast.
