Marine electronics company Raymarine has acquired Tacktick, a manufacturer of sports precision instruments.
Tacktick, formed in 1996 and based in Havant, Hampshire, United Kingdom, develops and manufactures wireless, solar powered instruments for the marine market. Raymarine purchased Tacktick from Suunto.
Tom Surran, General Manager of Raymarine UK Ltd, said, “We think this acquisition makes tremendous sense for us.  Tacktick’s unique Micronet technology allied with the development rigor and manufacturing efficiencies of Raymarine will make for a powerful combination.”
Currently available through the usual channels, Tacktick equipment complements the Raymarine product range and will eventually be distributed as a product line through Raymarine subsidiaries, distributors and service dealers worldwide. Tacktick customers will also become a part of Raymarine’s marine service network.
