Satcom Global brings on-board Marine and Offshore Systems experts AND Group

Leading satellite communications provider Satcom Global has added marine and offshore safety and security products along with a range of enhanced engineering services to their portfolio following a full rebrand of sister company AND Group.

Bringing over 40 years’ experience in the design, integration and supply of marine and offshore technology, AND Group, now under the Satcom Global brand, will bring to the table their internationally recognised reputation and exclusive supply relationships with leading marine equipment manufacturers such as Bosch Security, Autronica Fire and Security, FHF, Cobham SATCOM and Furuno.

Ian Robinson, CEO of BSS Group which owns AND Group and Satcom Global, said:

“Combining the expertise, skills and assets of AND Group under the Satcom Global brand fits perfectly within our strategic framework of strengthening our end-to-end solutions capabilities in key areas. At Satcom Global we are passionate about personalised service, and by bringing the traditional AND Group business into Satcom Global, our customers across the globe will benefit from the expansion of our product portfolio and expertise in marine and offshore system design and engineering. We remain focused on creating innovative and differentiated services which present compelling value propositions to our customers in our core maritime market.”

With two engineering hubs in the UK and Singapore, Satcom Global boast engineering services including 24/7/365 response engineering, installation and commissioning, turnkey solutions, annual surveys, and managed maintenance contracts. Also available are specialist niche services including training for vessel shot blasting and surface maintenance, as well as a marine spares division which stocks an extensive range of spare parts, enabling customers to save money by maintaining and prolonging the life of their systems.

Stephen Warren, Sales Manager of the marine and offshore products and systems division said:

“Founded on the banks of the River Tyne over 40 years ago, AND Group has deep historical roots in the maritime industry. It has earned a long standing reputation for delivering high quality, technical engineering projects, and installing and integrating marine and offshore systems across large and complex offshore platforms and commercial vessels. The most crucial element of the AND Group brand identity which is synonymous with prestige and trust is our team of knowledgeable experts. They will contribute valuable experience, skills and key supplier relationships, solidifying Satcom Global’s position as a leading full service supplier to the maritime market.”
