Control Panel for Beier Radio’s newest product the IVCS4000 Series DPS.

Evolving with the tech since 1945

Beier Radio was established in 1945 as a family business in a garage workshop. In 1945, two-way radios were the most technologically advanced electronics on the market, hence the name Beier Radio. As the technology has evolved, so has the company, and although Beier Radio continues to sell and service radios, this is only a small part of its business today.

The company has remained on the cutting edge of technology, and today it manufactures, sells and services vessel control systems, steering systems, computer-based alarm and monitoring systems, cargo control systems, general alarm systems, thruster control systems and engine control systems. It also sells and service radars, external communication systems, interior communication systems and navigation systems, including ECDIS.

The vessels under construction today are complex, and Beier Radio’s engineering department works with the vessel owner, the shipyard and other vendors to provide system design support, installation support and system integration. Beier Radio also provide Class and Flag State required drawings and submittals; a hands-on approach designed to reduce installation times, increases system reliability and ensures the vessel performs as designed.

Beier Radio presented the new Beier IVCS 4000 DP System at the 2012 International Work Boat Show in New Orleans. The Beier IVCS 4000 DP System builds on the core principles of its predecessor, with the addition of new hardware, software and graphics. The system is designed to be extremely easy to use and maintain while providing the lowest cost of ownership.

The company has one of the largest service departments in the industry, with 24-hour remote and field service capabilities, and a large parts inventory strategically located along the central Gulf Coast.

The Beier Radio Training School is another way to serve its clients which includes a DP Operator Training curriculum accredited by the Nautical Institute of London. Certifications are offered in Induction and Advanced DP Operations, utilizing actual IVCS DP systems as simulators. Technical training helps customers maintain, troubleshoot and repair the most common problems experienced offshore. Beier Radio ECDIS Training is scheduled to begin in the fourth quarter of 2013. The company is building a new training facility in Gray, La., with completion scheduled in May 2013.
