Furuno has acquired Danish company EMRI A/S, founded in 1972 and specializing in autopilots, steering control, joystick dynamic positioning and maneuvering systems.

Based in Herlev, a suburb to Copenhagen, EMRI is a provider of steering control systems, autopilots and track control systems.

Their autopilots have been well accepted for almost 2 decades, worldwide, and are today in operation onboard 1000+ vessels. Steering control systems have also been a key focus of EMRI's for many years.

Steering gear remote control systems are designed to fit owners' requirements of safety and ease of operation. The customer reference list includes some of the world-renowned shipping companies and cruise line owners.

EMRI also designs and manufactures Joystick Dynamic Positioning systems with cutting-edge fuel saving algorithms. EMRI is an Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) supplier to several major industrial players with a large installed base.

"The reason for the acquisition is justified by FEC's plans to position Furuno solidly in the Deep Sea shipping market, the Cruise vessel market and in automated vessels - ultimately autonomous vessels. EMRI's know-how and experience complement Furuno's competencies and expand our product range," Furuno said.

The companies have agreed not to disclose the terms of the transaction.
