FURUNO named “MANUFACTURER OF THE YEAR” for the 8th consecutive year, plus 2 more “BEST OF” awards.
Furuno, world-renowned manufacturer of marine electronics, won three more National Marine Electronics Association (NMEA) awards at the prestigious 2013 NMEA Convention in San Diego, CA. These three awards had Furuno once again leading the total number of awards captured by any one manufacturer this year, as well as bringing Furuno's NMEA Award all-time total to an incredible 208, since NMEA started presenting awards in 1971.
Furuno once again received the highly coveted Manufacturer of the Year – Support award, making this the eighth year in a row. Furuno remains the sole recipient of this award, since its introduction on the ballot in 2005. “With 2013 marking Furuno USA's 35th year in business, receiving the Manufacturer of the Year award just makes this anniversary a greater tribute,” stated Jim Atteridge, President of Furuno USA. “A company is only as good as its people, and we have the best crew in the industry. Match that with our outstanding dealer network and an amazing product line, and you have a winning formula for success.”
Furuno's winning streak remains unbroken in the Radar category. The NavNet TZT14 with DRS4D Radar received the Best Radar award. Furuno's Radar technology has been the industry benchmark for years, and that shows with their 38th year in a row winning Best Radar. The TZT14 is a 14″ Multi Touch MFD coupled with a 4 kW, 24-inch Radar Dome, which incorporates Furuno's UHD Digital Radar processing for ultimate target detection and performance.
