Marine Data Systems Limited develop and manufacture marine navigation and control systems from their base on the Isle of Wight. Their equipment is fitted in the military naval ships of NATO, the Gulf States and the Far East, and is also in use on the liners of the world’s leading leisure shipping lines - including P&O™ and Disney®.
MDSL's challenge was a lack of space in which to expand to meet the demands of their growth program. BTG funds were secured to contribute to the extension and renovation of their current facility, resulting in a high quality reception area with improved access and increased purpose built space for housing environmental test equipment. This enabled MDSL to safeguard eight jobs and create three brand new engineering roles.
Marine Data Systems Limited Managing Director, Tim Ingram, said:
This project is a key part of our continuing company development plan and we are very pleased to have been selected as a recipient of the Solent LEP grant funding.
