Digital Yacht have been awarded a prestigious Queen’s Award for International Trade.
They design and manufacture marine navigation and communication products for ships and yachts and have grown export sales by over 50 per cent in the past three years. They now export to more than 100 countries and this represent more than 70 per cent of their total revenues. Products include AIS systems, wireless solutions for internet afloat and a range of interfacing gateways and marine networking products.
“This award is an amazing team achievement that celebrates everything we do from product development, local manufacturing, international marketing, logistics and our corporate social responsibilities,” commented Nicolas Guerin who heads up business development. He joined Digital Yacht seven years ago as a business graduate and has seen the business grow with the opening of a new European office in Rouen last year. The company also has a Boston based office for the US & Canadian market.
Founder and CEO, Nick Heyes added “Digital Yacht started back in 2011 with just a handful of products. Since then, we’ve organically developed innovative products and solutions spending 15 per cent of revenues on R&D. We think about the global market place right from the outset. To earn this Queen’s Award for Enterprise is a huge accomplishment for the business and the whole crew.”
