Cobham: Fierce competition challenges

Cobham Satcom's new head of shipping equipment, Jan Kragh Michelsen, sees himself in the midst of a challenging but buddingly optimistic market. Following a merger process, Cobham Satcom is settled in a competitive market.

"We've spent a lot of energy on creating the new Cobham Satcom. But now the supertanker has left the port and is ready to sail the seas," says Jan Kragh Michelsen, Senior Vice President of Cobham Satcom's maritime division.

He is referring to the fact that British Cobham acquired satellite manufacturer Thrane & Thrane in 2012, and the company has since then been working hard to integrate the two companies and to build the Cobham Satcom division, which sells satellite and radio communication equipment, as well as other monitoring equipment, to the shipping industry.
