Tacktick acquired by Raymarine
29 June 2011
Raymarine is pleased to announce the acquisition of Tacktick from Suunto, a leading manufacturer of sports precision instruments. Tacktick, formed in 1996 and based in Havant, Hampshire UK, develops and manufactures wireless, solar powered instruments for the marine market.
This development presents an exciting opportunity for Raymarine and Tacktick in the global sailboat market. Currently available through the usual channels, Tacktick equipment complements the Raymarine product range and will eventually be distributed as a product line through Raymarine subsidiaries, distributors and service dealers worldwide. Tacktick customers will also reap the benefit of Raymarine’s superior marine service network.
Tom Surran, General Manager of Raymarine UK Ltd, said, ‘We think this acquisition makes tremendous sense for us. Tacktick’s unique Micronet technology allied with the development rigor and manufacturing efficiencies of Raymarine will make for a powerful combination.’
