16 September, 2020 – Jotron is the original equipment manufacturer (OEM) for the Japanese company JRC’s newly launched JHS-207 two-way VHF radiotelephone. The original Tron TR30 VHF radio was developed and produced by Jotron in 2014. Earlier this year, JRC and Jotron entered into an agreement confirming the production of JRC branded handheld VHFs. The first batch of JHS-207 two-way VHF radiotelephones is already in use on ships worldwide.
Established in 1967, Jotron has been a major contributor in the development and production of equipment for safety at sea. In 1970, the company developed and installed the world’s first Distress Radio Beacon on board a ship. Today, Jotron develops and manufactures a complete GMDSS product portfolio for ship safety.
JRC was founded in 1915 and is a leading communications technology company. JRC has been an important customer and partner since 2008. The company obtained the Japanese type approval certificate for Jotron’s Tron SART20 the same year. JRC is also a significant customer of Jotron’s Tron 40VDR float free capsule.
“JRC has a strong reputation for delivering some of the best maritime products with high performance and superior quality,” says Vegar Pettersen, Sales & Marketing Director Maritime & Energy at Jotron. – JRC has been a customer and Jotron partner for many years and trust Jotron’s expertise within GMDSS products.
