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 specialized IT solutions. In order to operate fully as a system integrator, Alphatron Marine made a strategic partnership with the Japanese JRC (Japan Radio Company). A ‘one-stop-shop’ 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 (Japan Radio Company). This branch handles a large portion of the service and sales in the Belgian ports. On November 9th 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 (shipping port, industry and labour).
