In 2010, KVH Industries Norway AS opened in the coastal city of Horten to support manufacturing, research and development, as well as sales, marketing, and support. Central to this effort is the production of KVH’s CommBox™, a ship-to-shore network management product which offers a range of tools designed to increase maritime communication efficiency, reduce costs, and manage network operations.
The CommBox’s contribution to seamless maritime fleet management is in line with KVH’s strategy to serve the global shipping market. As well, the country of Norway, along with Denmark, manages approximately 15% of global fleet tonnage, making the KVH Industries Norway operation critical to the company’s goal of connecting in-motion offshore customers with the same digital services they rely on in their homes and offices.
KVH’s Norway office is also a support center for sales of the company’s high-performance fiber optic gyroscopes and FOG-based inertial navigation systems to the European space and oil industries.
KVH Industries is always looking for talented individuals who work effectively in a fast-paced, team environment to achieve extraordinary results. Exciting opportunities exist for enthusiastic, creative, flexible, and driven individuals to work in a dynamic, rapidly growing company.
