Hatteland Display, the leading marine display and panel computer manufacturer has introduced an advanced line manufacturing facility that greatly increases its production capacity at its Nedre Vats, Norway facility.
Hatteland Display was purchased by Ferd Private Equity Fund II (FPEF II) on 27th March 2007 and the company is now coming to the end of an initial ‘100 Days Process’. The new manufacturing capacity is part of this initial consultation and is a sign of the investment that the new owners of Hatteland Display are willing to make to ensure that the company retains its position as the dominant supplier of marine displays and panel computers to systems integrators and shipyards.
“Our business is growing and we want to ensure that we have the capacity for future production needs before they arise,” says Knut Vidar Lauritsen, CEO, Hatteland Display. “The line manufacturing method enables our production engineers to be far more efficient but still ensure the quality and reliability that Hatteland products are so well known for.”
Hatteland Display’s Series 1 is practically the de facto standard in displays for commercial shipping and Naval electronic systems. The continuing upward trend in shipbuilding and the recent launches of several new sophisticated product lines including the Series 2 marine displays and widescreen displays has resulted in steadily increasing orders. The new production capacity at Hatteland Display ensures that all orders can and will be fulfilled to the high standards that Hatteland Display customers are accustomed to.
