Jotron AS was founded in 1967 and has grown into one of the most respected names in the maritime sector, primarily for Safety at Sea products. - Jotron was, for example, the first company to develop and bring to market an Emergency Position-Indicating Radio Beacon (EPIRB).
The company’s products have consistently been at the cutting edge of safety communication equipment for maritime applications and Jotron works closely with the International Maritime Organisation (IMO) and other maritime organisations to develop and regulate innovative new products.
The Global Maritime Distress & Safety System (GMDSS) was established in 1992 by the IMO requiring all ships covered by the International Convention for the Safety of Life at Sea (SOLAS) to install one 406 MHz float-free EPIRB, two radar transponders and portable VHF’s. Since the establishment of GMDSS, Jotron has become a major supplier of the specified emergency radio equipment necessary to fulfil these mandatory requirements.
In addition, Jotron provides reliable and professional communication products for commercial vessels, fishing vessels and large pleasure crafts as well as high intensity marker and emergency lights for various marine and other applications ranging from mountaineering, hiking and diving to fish farm and lifeboat applications.
