- 04 Sep 2012
AMI and Kelvin Hughes Limited agree terms to expand their areas of cooperation in South East Asia.
Spike Hughes, the Sales and Marketing Director at Kelvin Hughes praised AMI for enabling KH to become the pre-eminent supplier of navigational equipment in the commercial marine market in Australia in a successful association which has spanned over 22 years. He added, "We value AMI’s loyalty, enthusiasm and expertise and are keen to not only grow our business with them in Australia but also extend it throughout the rest of South East Asia including Singapore. This deal will provide AMI’s excellent service to all our customers in the region.
Through our cooperation with AMI we have grown a sizeable market in Australia for all types of craft from high-speed ferries to megayachts and patrol vessels. We believe that AMI is uniquely placed to service our customers with offices in, or close to, all the main ports in Australia. The agreement today will see us build on this successful base as both companies benefit by working more closely together in South East Asia". Commenting Jim Fraser MD of AMI added “All HSC fast ferries that are now being built in Australia feature Kelvin Hughes' Radars; an accolade which speaks for itself, we have a long-standing relationship and are very pleased to see that because of our performance the Company has agreed that we expand our operations into the whole of South East Asia.”
