Leif Ottosson, Chief Executive Officer, Navico said: “We are proud to have built important relationships with our Finnish channel partners and recognise their importance in our future growth within the region. By establishing a local trading company, we are reinforcing our commitment to Finland and providing a sound base to support our customers.”
“We look forward to increasing our strong relationship with OPM for distribution of the Lowrance brand and are also continuing to work with Oy Maritim for wholesale distribution, who have been most influential in the success of the Simrad and B&G brands in Finland.”

The team at Navico Finland now provides customer support for the Simrad and B&G brands and customers will continue to benefit from the Advantage Service Program, and receive the very highest standards of care. The Team at OPM will continue to provide full customer support for the Lowrance range of products.
