Intellian Technologies’ UK facility in Southampton has been made the sole distributor of Intellian products in Britain.

The UK team will be supported by Intellian’s newly expanded facility in Rotterdam, which has been in operation since April 2011.

Distribution in the UK was previously handled by Procom.

“With our new UK infrastructure, supported by the Intellian Rotterdam facility, we can provide fast delivery, factory trained engineering and installation backed by our enlarged international distribution centre which will enhance our expansion in the maritime market in Europe,” says Jon Harrison, general manager of the Intellian UK and Intellian Rotterdam facilities.

Intellian moved its distribution centre in the Netherlands to new premises in Rotterdam earlier this year, quadrupling its warehouse and workshop spaces and enabling the facility to support much higher inventory levels for the European market.

It also allows Intellian to provide the complete product range directly from stock within the EU, with very short lead times on the majority of its marine antennas and other equipment.

Headquartered in Seoul, with a Maritime Technical Centre in Busan, South Korea, Intellian is a global leader in maritime satellite communication antenna technology.

The company exports its products to six continents and over 45 countries.
