FURUNO, world-renowned manufacturer of marine electronics, was honored with four awards at the prestigious 2008 National Marine Electronics Association (NMEA) Convention in San Diego, CA. This year’s event, held October 1st – 4th, celebrated the 37th anniversary of the NMEA awards.
For the third straight year, Furuno received the prestigious award for Manufacturer of the Year – Support. In fact, Furuno has secured this award every year the category has been included on the ballot. The award clearly illustrates what an important role customer service plays within Furuno USA and with our technical marine electronics dealer network.
“We are extremely pleased to be honored with this award again in 2008,” stated Jim Atteridge, President of Furuno USA. “There is no way a company can win without the Team Effort of its employees, who consistently support our products and technical dealers. Furuno is proud to be supported by an excellent NMEA technical dealer network.”
NavNet 3D met with extreme popularity by winning NMEA Awards in the three major categories; Radar, Navigation and Fish Finding. Furuno took top honors in the Radar Category for the thirty-third consecutive year with the NavNet 3D DRS Ultra Hi-Definition Radar Series. The NavNet 3D DRS Radars come in a variety of sizes, from the 2.2 kW, 19-inch Radome to the powerful 25 kW, 6 ft. Open Array. Each sensor incorporates Furuno’s UHD Digital Radar processing for the ultimate in target detection and performance.
