Korean antenna manufacturer KNS has entered into a partnership agreement with Dubai-based satellite services provider North Telecom, under which the companies will offer each other mutual support in building market share in the maritime communications sector.

NorthTelecom hopes to increase its footprint in the oil & gas, and maritime telecommunication sectors with the agreement,. The agreement gives KNS access to NorthTelecom's storage facilities for their antennnas at their warehousing facilities across the globe.

NorthTelecom has entered into a partnership agreement with KNS, a leading marine antenna manufacturer in South Korea, as part of its efforts to strengthen its position in the South Asian market. NorthTelecom had previously acquired Malaysia-based Telecommunication Company, Scopetel, which has expertise particularly in the oil & gas and maritime segments of the market.

By leveraging their respective competitive edge, especially their commitment to meet customer needs, both NorthTelecom and KNS by means of this agreement, will be able to increase the profitability of their market share and client base.

Speaking about the partnership, Hadi Nazari Mehrabi, CEO of NorthTelecom commented: "The future of the satellite market lies in building strong partnerships and alliances. Such a progressive move will enable us to increase our footprint in both the oil & gas and the maritime telecommunication sector. Our primary focus is to venture into the market along with KNS, to provide cost effective and high-quality services to our customers."
