ADVETO expand into the US West Coast and Alaska.

ADVETO and Harris Electric in Seattle are partnering to give ADVETO sales and service coverage in the North Pacific. ADVETO is expanding its presence throughout the globe by partnering with well known, reliable companies within the field of Marine Electronics. This is a direct consequence of the rapid growth of ADVETO’s ECDIS-4000 users.

“The idea of partnering with an innovative, high tech navigation firm like ADVETO is exciting.” says Erik Sundholm, President of Harris Electric. “Also, with the implementation of ECDIS and growing demand for vessel tracking systems, it is the perfect time for ADVETO to expand its global sales and service network.”

“We are pleased to have found such a strong partner with long and good reputation in one of our most important markets” says Magnus Karlsson, Marketing Manager of ADVETO. “The North Pacific is one of the most dense populated Fast Ferry regions in the world and with the IMO mandate to use type approved ECDIS we expect to see a continues growth of our ECDIS-4000 users.”


ADVETO Advanced Technology AB has been in the Electronic Navigation branch since the mid 1980´s. Adveto systems are used all across the world in and around all continents by work boats, tow boats, ferries and ocean-crossing cruise-liners, pilot boats, and training ships. They have become increasingly popular onboard High Speed Crafts and especially with those operating in archipelagos. The majority of our users are still found in Scandinavia but with a rapidly growing number of users around the world. In addition to the National Maritime Administrations in Sweden, Norway and Denmark, the corresponding bodies in Poland, Spain and Argentina are also ADVETO users and so are customers in many important harbours around the world.
