Raymarine to Relocate U.S. Headquarters

Raymarine is relocating its U.S. headquarters. Raymarine will be moving from its Nashua, New Hampshire location to new offices at 21 Manchester Street in Merrimack, New Hampshire. The company will be fully situated at the new location on April 11th. "We had a number of goals in mind when selecting the location of our new U.S. headquarters," said Terry Carlson, president, Raymarine. "We wanted a building that was more reflective of the caliber of our products and the Raymarine corporate image, as well as one that would offer us greater efficiencies. It was also very important that we remain in the New Hampshire area for our employees and our customers. We are thrilled to have found a new home that met all of our requirements and we're looking forward to conducting business from our new address." The company's Merrimack facilities will satisfy the organization's future space requirements as it expands its New Hampshire employee base and national brand presence during the coming years.
