SMS Partner with Kwant Controls

We are delighted to announce our agreement with Kwant Controls B.V. to provide Controls Service Support.

Group Sales Director, Ryan McIntyre, travelled to Kwant Controls HQ in the Netherlands pre-covid to meet with the team, and he had this to say about finalising the deal earlier this month:

KC has been designing and manufacturing innovative, world-leading nautical systems since 1937. When the opportunity arose to work more closely with Kwant we were delighted to have those discussions. This is an exciting development for customers who depend on skilled and qualified engineers who understand control systems. We look forward to working with Kwant to meet the needs of new and existing customers.
