June 2019 sponsor profile – SIMRAD

Simrad Logo

SIMRAD have been a proud sponsor of the WSFC for a number of years now, in particular supporting the Raglan One Base Tournament.So, a little information about SIMRAD:

Simrad Yachting develops, manufactures and distributes navigation systems, autopilots, marine VHF radios, chart plotters, echo sounders, radars, fish finders and a wide range of other marine technology.

The Simrad name has been in existence for over sixty years. The brand was established in 1947 by Willy Christian Simonsen, who set up his own wireless company called Simonsen Radio. Initially, he focused on the production of radio communications for fishing vessels but a few years later coined the name Simrad to encompass a wider range of activities – namely the design and manufacture of navigation, communication, auto-steering and fish-finding technologies.

We employ over 2,500 team members worldwide, with a team based in New Zealand.

Over the years we have had some key achievements like we developed the award-winning HALOTM Pulse Compression Radar technology and StructureScan® 3D sonar technology for fish finding. These two breakthrough technologies have changed the way we find fish and navigate.
