NorthTelecom strengthens global position with KNS partnership

With the agreement, NorthTelecom hopes to increase its footprint in the oil & gas, and maritime telecommunication sectors. The agreement gives KNS access to NorthTelecom's storage facilities for their antennnas at their warehousing facilities across the globe.

NorthTelecom has entered into a partnership agreement with KNS, a leading marine antenna manufacturer in South Korea, as part of its efforts to strengthen its position in the South Asian market. NorthTelecom had previously acquired Malaysia-based Telecommunication Company, Scopetel, which has expertise particularly in the oil & gas and maritime segments of the market.

By leveraging their respective competitive edge, especially their commitment to meet customer needs, both NorthTelecom and KNS by means of this agreement, will be able to increase the profitability of their market share and client base.

Speaking about the partnership, Hadi Nazari Mehrabi, CEO of NorthTelecom commented: “The future of the satellite market lies in building strong partnerships and alliances. Such a progressive move will enable us to increase our footprint in both the oil & gas and the maritime telecommunication sector. Our primary focus is to venture into the market along with KNS, to provide cost effective and high-quality services to our customers.”

According to the agreement, besides offering proactive support and assistance to KNS for their global outreach programmes, NorthTelecom will also provide standby storage facilities for antennas manufactured by KNS in their warehousing facilities across the globe.

Kevin Jin, CEO of KNS, added: “One of the biggest trends in the business now and in the future will be forming the right alliances. We just hoisted the sails but, we are convinced that our partnership will lead to enhanced customer satisfaction in our target market and mutual benefit between all parties.”
