Seacoast now part of Radio Holland USA: One company, one brand
Radio Holland Group announces that per 15th January 2009, the business of Seacoast Electronics and Radio Holland USA will be fully merged into a single company. Seacoast became part of the Radio Holland Group organization in 2007. Since then, the cooperation between Radio Holland USA and Seacoast has become intensive, synergies have been identified and applied, and now the time has come to fully team up and become one organization. Seacoast Electronics has begun trading as Radio Holland USA from the Jacksonville and Tampa offices, which now also carry the Radio Holland name. As a result the Seacoast name will cease to exist.
Mr. Art Thomas Sr. (President of Seacoast Electronics) will join the RH USA Management Team as Vice President Business Development and Mr. Adam Cole will assume the role of Regional Manager - Radio Holland Jacksonville. In this position he will also oversee the service depot in Tampa, Florida. By combining the specific expertise and knowledge of the two companies Radio Holland is convinced that the new integrated company can offer the customers in the American and Canadian maritime market a strong and extensive portfolio of systems and services. Seacoast's expertise in vessel newbuilding is a good combination with RH' knowhow of the oil & gas market as well as Radio Holland Group’s worldwide service network. Radio Holland works with a Global Service SystemŽ – a unique database for service coordination and reporting. Efficient and effective service execution can be arranged on a global basis.
