ChartCo looks to further growth

Nov 10 2017

ChartCo has appointed Nick Copley as mergers & acquisitions director.

The company said that it had quickly grown its market position organically with the introduction of new products and services and more recently through strategic acquisitions, such as Norwegian digital safety management system company, Docmap, and the Swedish environmental shipping technology business, Marine Position.

Highly experienced in the M&A process Copley has a background in business services, finance and private equity. At ChartCo he will seek to enhance the company’s offering with innovative acquisitions that develop advanced, digital based products, which will complement the company’s range of services.

Copley commented, “I am excited to join a company, which has a long maritime history and is now leading the way in digital data management and compliance systems. At ChartCo we have over 13,000 vessels using our products together with a growing worldwide sales force.

“Expanding our services through further acquisitions means we can offer even more to our existing customers and continue to extend our customer base. ChartCo has an impressive history and a dynamic future and I am delighted to be part of it,” he said.

ChartCo’s CEO, Martin Taylor, said, “We are very pleased with the appointment of Nick Copley, his breadth of experience will be a great asset in continuing to drive our acquisition strategy and developing our capabilities platform. This senior hire signals our commitment to further growth and meeting the needs of a rapidly changing marine industry poised for increased digital adoption.”

At Europort this week, ChartCo launched version 5.4 of EnviroManager. Already installed on over 500 vessels since its launch in early 2017, EnviroManager is claimed to be a simple and easy to understand user interface with all the information available to assist vessels to comply with MARPOL regulations for discharges and emissions.

EnviroManager includes the baseline information for each nation as required by the regulations. The display shows ‘distance from land’ as measured from the official country baseline, as opposed to the shoreline, which is identified on a navigational chart.
