Raytheon Anschütz establishes new US subsidiary

12 Jan 2012

Raytheon Anschütz is expanding its presence in the US navigation systems market with the opening of a new San Diego-based operation in January 2012, located at Raytheon’s existing development facility.

With the new office, Raytheon Anschütz says it will focus its capabilities in providing navigation systems and customer support to the US maritime industry. The new office will promote the full portfolio of Raytheon Anschütz’s navigationcomponents and solutions, including gyro compasses, autopilots and steering controls, radars, ECDIS and complete integrated bridge systems for newbuid and retrofit projects.

“With the expansion of Raytheon Anschütz into the United States, we’ve created a US-based team that leverages the navigation expertise of both Raytheon Company and Raytheon Anschütz,” said Raytheon Anschutz’s Frank Christophersen, vice president, sales USA. “The office will become America’s new center of navigation excellence, providing the full scope of navigation technology and best-in-class service and support for shipyards and ship owners.”

Backed by Raytheon’s infrastructure, Raytheon Anschütz’s US operation will provide customers with direct access to technical advice and pre-sale consultancy regarding IMO recommendations, class requirements and operational needs, as well as an array of lifecycle support services.

Raytheon Anschutz’s existing US after-sales and service network spans both coastlines through a spare parts and service coordination center and more than 50 service points. Worldwide, the company maintains a network of more than 200 service stations and spare parts depots.

Raytheon Anschütz says its navigation systems are installed on more than 30,000 ships, making it a leader in bridge and navigation systems. The opening of the new office signals the return of the navigation business of Raytheon and Anschütz to the USA. For many years, the former companies Anschuetz of America and Raytheon Marine had been established navigation system providers for shipyards and shipping companies in the USA.
