Hatteland Display Celebrates 25 Years
On November 1, 2014, Hatteland Display celebrated its 25th anniversary as a supplier of maritime displays and computers.
From the early days in 1989 and up until today, the company has delivered more than 200,000 products to system integrators worldwide. Hatteland Display reports that 2014 will be a record year with more than 21,000 new products to be delivered to the market from its production facility in Nedre Vats outside of Haugesund in Norway.
The company’s type-approved displays, computers and panel computers are used on board commercial ships, offshore vessels, workboats, naval vessels and leisure craft around the globe. Main application areas are navigation systems such as radar and ECDIS, automation systems and monitoring systems. The most recent addition to Hatteland Display’s product series range is the Series X, featuring glass front, multitouch functionality and panel computer options.
Trond K. Johannessen, President & CEO of Hatteland Display , said, “Our success over the past 25 years has been thanks to dedicated and very competent employees. However, it has been even more so thanks to demanding customers, who have built with us a spirit of cooperation to deliver innovative solutions for a challenging environment like the professional maritime industry. On this, our 25th anniversary, we would like to thank all our employees, customers, suppliers and partners for their contribution to our development and for their ongoing support.”
Introduction of mandatory ECDIS (electronic chart display information systems) legislation for existing vessels from 2014-2018, increasing use of touch screens instead of mechanical control panels and next generation bridge solutions, will provide further opportunities for growth and development for Hatteland Display in the years ahead, the company said.
