Three divisions, one 

Alphatron has three divisions. Our expertise covers a wide range of highly specialised fields in which communication, observation, navigation and logistics are crucial. Our product is technology, but it is often our technical support and service which attract our customers to us. Irrespective of the complexity of a given problem, the solution should be as simple as possible. At the same time, our motivation is to satisfy the customer's exact requirements and resist the temptation to compromise by implementing "off the peg" or near solutions. In other words, we can be the inventor, the co-maker or a fast and reliable vendor, whatever the requirement may be. In Alphatron, customers will always find a partner that listens, collaborates and provides a solution that works. The human touch in technology: that is what Alphatron stands for.

Alphatron Marine Alphatron Marine

For years Alphatron Marine has been importing, supplying, installing and providing technical support of high-spec navigation and communication equipment aboard ships, thereby enhancing the safety of the ship and its crew in increasingly busier shipping lanes whilst boosting fuel efficiency. But we wanted to do even more. Our intensive collaboration with specialist shipyards and shipowners, along with our desire to respond even better to their needs, resulted in the development of more our own products. Alphatron has now become a leading producer and co-producer of complete bridge systems.

The lack of clarity in the wide variety of equipment often found on many ship’s bridges prompted the development of an ergonomic bridge: the AlphaBridge. This, along with our own range of instruments, forms a fully integrated bridge. The Alphatron multi-command chair enables all the required equipment to be operated from one work station. The functional, smart and ergnomically conceived design of our own equipment has received various design awards. The police, Rijkswaterstaat (Public Works Dept), Customs, Damen Shipyards Group and IHC Merwede have been using Alphatron for years to produce comprehensive solutions for navigation, communication, observation and automation.

In order to keep pace with developments, we invest in an R&D team, product managers and (navigation) console builders that assemble and test complete bridge systems in our own workshops. Quality is assured by providing formal end-user training as well as fully qualified maintenance personnel, supported by an efficient service organisation. Our own training centre is equipped with the latest products and simulators. We have an extensive stock of spare parts for both current and older products and, in addition to our team of field service engineers, we are part of a worldwide network of trained service staff. Close contact with customers and our innovative approach have paved the way for collaboration with one of Alphatron's loyal suppliers of high-spec maritime electronics, JRC (Japan Radio Company) on some equipment production.
