It has taken a little over a year for the new company Lars Thrane A/S to get off the ground. The company has been set up by the founder of the same name, Lars Thrane, who is also the founder of successful enterprise Thrane & Thrane, today known as Cobham Satcom.

Today, Lars Thrane has set sail and now serves as chairman of Lars Thrane A/S, which has just launched its first products, he tells ShippingWatch. And the ambition is for more many products to follow. The 66-year old entrepreneur retains the same passion for navigation and shipping communication, after a tough battle with UK-based Cobham Satcom, following which he wound up selling his life’s work – the communication equipment manufacturer Thrane & Thrane - a few years ago.
