press release
Wednesday, January 04, 2012

Current headquarters will be relocated to larger commercial space in San Diego, California.
 
 

Boatracs Inc., a leader in providing integrated satellite communications and software solutions to the maritime industry, announced it has acquired a 12,500 square-foot office building in San Diego, California as a space for their Corporate Headquarters.  Boatracs will occupy the building to house general operations, engineering, shipping and its Network Operations Center for 24 hour live customer support. 
 
 

The investment represents a major highlight in Boatracs’ history, and further solidifies the company’s infrastructure for its continuing growth and success.  Boatracs was founded in San Diego 22 years ago, as the strategic provider of Qualcomm’s satellite communications products and services to the marine industry.  The company continues to serve the inland and offshore workboat, commercial fishing and government sectors of the industry and has evolved to offering multiple satellite communications hardware systems along with its own industry-leading fleet management software.  A sales office is also maintained in New Iberia, Louisiana to serve its customers in the Gulf of Mexico.
 
 

“We are extremely proud to have obtained this building for our new headquarters” said Irwin Rodrigues, President and CEO of Boatracs.  “With the launch of two new products in 2011, and additional services scheduled for release throughout 2012, this facility is ideally suited to accommodate our growth strategy.  The purchase demonstrates the commitment and strong long-term outlook we have for the maritime industry and for our business.”
