Elcome Expands Distribution For Koden Electronics Marine Products
Elcome International today announced that its Sri Lanka office, International Marine Services, has become an authorized sales and service provider of Koden Electronics products.
Elcome, which has been a Koden distributor in UAE, Oman, Saudi Arabia and India for more than 30 years, is now also providing comprehensive field service and onboard support for Koden products from its Sri Lanka office.
Headquartered in Japan, Koden offers a broad-based marine electronics product line including IMO-compliant and non-IMO radars, GPS, echosounders, chart plotters, sonars and AIS transceivers for offshore support vessels, towboats, fishing boats and other commercial vessels.
Elcome’s Sri Lanka office was opened in 2014. It is staffed with factory-trained technicians and fully stocked with spare parts for ready access. The Elcome facility is conveniently located inside the Port of Colombo and supports a wide range of commercial and defense projects.
“We are expanding our long-standing business relationship with Koden to include representation at our rapidly growing facility in Sri Lanka, which is emerging as a major regional center of activity for the marine industry and an important strategic location close to major Indian Ocean shipping routes,” said Jimmy Grewal, executive director of Elcome International.
“Elcome is a proven and valued partner for Koden Electronics, and we look forward to working with their professional sales and service team to support our customers in Sri Lanka moving forward,” said Shintaro Arata, president of Koden Electronics Co. Ltd.
