KEP Marine has announced that it has been renamed Aydin Marine.

The change follows its recent acquisition by Sparton Corporation through its display brand, Aydin Displays.

“By completing this integration of KEP Marine into our family of companies, we get the benefit of their vast experience in the marine market,” said Art Mengel, director of business development for Rugged Electronics, Aydin Displays.

“We will use this experience to expand our customer base by enhancing our portfolio with more of the high-quality, dependable products our customers have come to expect,” he added.

The newly branded Aydin Marine also announced the release of a new streamlined installation system for multiple marine monitors, the Aydin Marine Glass Pod.

Designed to fit monitors from seven to 19-inches or larger custom designed systems, the Glass Pod aims to minimise the carpentry and wiring demands of multiple-monitor displays.

It offers a watertight front that can be operated in even the most extreme environments and is designed specifically to be fully serviceable from the rear and is compatible with any manufacturers’ black-box solution.
