EIVA will join the Sonardyne group of companies while remaining an independent business and brand. EIVA CEO, Jeppe Nielsen will remain in post, while Sonardyne’s Investment and Integration Director Stephen Fasham will take on the role of Chairman.
“We are committed to a sustainable future for Sonardyne,” said Simon Partridge, Sonardyne’s Strategy Director, “which includes investing in complementary technologies and enterprises that supplement our core expertise in underwater communications, navigation, monitoring and imaging systems.”
EIVA has more than 40 years’ experience in the development and delivery of software and hardware solutions to offshore and shallow water engineering and survey organisations, and is increasingly supporting customers with their requirements for higher levels of automation and remote and unmanned operations through its NaviSuite software. The company employs more than 75 people with headquarters in Denmark.
“EIVA and Sonardyne share many of the same corporate values including long-term commitment and focus towards customers, partners and employees,” said Sonardyne Managing Director, John Ramsden. “We see great potential in the EIVA product lines as well as synergies between the companies leading to new offerings. Sonardyne has the ability and willingness to accelerate the growth of the company. We are happy to see that the entire EIVA management team has chosen to stay on board to work with us into the future.”
