Raytheon Anschütz expands to USA

1/17/2012
Raytheon Anschütz is expanding its presence in the U.S. navigation systems market with the opening of its San Diego-based operations in January 2012. The business area will be co-located at Raytheon’s established facility, dedicated to the development and delivery of naval and maritime systems and technology.

With the new office, Raytheon Anschütz, a subsidiary of Raytheon Co., focuses its capabilities in providing navigation systems and customer support to the U.S. maritime industry. The U.S. office will promote the full portfolio of Raytheon Anschütz’s navigation components and solutions, including gyro compasses, autopilots and steering controls, radars, ECDIS and complete integrated bridge systems for both, new and retrofit projects.

“With the expansion of Raytheon Anschütz into the United States, we’ve created a U.S.-based team that leverages the navigation expertise of both Raytheon Co. and Raytheon Anschütz,” said Raytheon Anschutz’s Frank Christophersen, vice president, sales USA, in a company press release. “The office will become America’s new center of navigation excellence, providing the full scope of navigation technology and best-in-class service and support for shipyards and ship owners.”

Backed by Raytheon’s infrastructure and technical expertise, the company says, Raytheon Anschütz’s U.S. operation is dedicated to providing customers with direct access to technical advice and pre-sale consultancy regarding International Maritime Organization recommendations, class requirements and operational needs, as well as an array of lifecycle support services.

After sales, Raytheon Anschutz’s services network spans U.S. coastlines through a large spare parts and service coordination center, the company says, as well as more than 50 service points, providing customers timely, reliable service and predictable results. Outside of the U.S., Raytheon Anschütz maintains a network of more than 200 service stations and spare parts depots worldwide.

The opening of the new office signals the return of the navigation business of Raytheon and Anschütz to the USA, the company says. For many years, the former companies Anschuetz of America and Raytheon Marine had been established navigation system providers for many shipyards and shipping companies from all over the United States.
