Aarhus, Denmark – Today, the two companies ISIC A/S and Terma A/S have entered into a strategic partnering agreement. As a result of this agreement, the two companies further strengthen a well-established collaboration. ISIC, headquartered in Brabrand near Aarhus, Denmark, is a leading Danish supplier of computers and monitors for the defense and marine sectors and industrial customers. These sectors require reliable equipment that must operate in extremely demanding environments.
Since 2006, ISIC has provided various types of custom-made computers which are applied in Terma’s radar systems and in command and control systems for naval vessels. Within the last two years, the collaboration has evolved from a supplier relationship into a true partnership.
Jens Husted, Vice President, Supply Chain and Procurement in Terma, explains: “We have a good collaboration with ISIC. Over a number of years, ISIC has demonstrated the ability and willingness to supply the custom-made computer solutions we require. ISIC has gradually completed more and more complex tasks for us, and on their own initiative, they contribute to design and development with their valuable domain knowledge.”
“We aim to establish close and long-term relationships with high-tech companies in the sectors, we address, i.e. the defense area, the marine and the industrial sectors. Therefore, we emphasize being in close dialog with our customers and develop products based on customer requirements and needs,” says President and CEO Bo Lander Rasmussen, ISIC. He continues: “We have benefited significantly from our collaboration with Terma. We have to meet strict quality and documentation requirements which we also benefit from in other contexts. The positive development in our collaboration with Terma is possible because the entire organization and the processes, we use, support Terma´s requirements for high quality in all phases”, he says.
The continued closer relationship is formalized in a Memorandum of Understanding which was signed today at ISIC. The agreement implies that the partners agree on the continuation and expansion of the collaboration.
”For Terma, it is crucial that we have competent and reliable partners such as ISIC which can deliver advanced computer equipment for our solutions and systems. Radar systems are often placed in environments with very harsh weather, and we must guarantee our customers that the equipment works in all weather conditions. This is one of the reasons for ISIC being a key collaboration partner for Terma”, says Jørn Henrik Levy Rasmussen, Vice President, Terma Global.
“High-tech jobs are also part of the recipe for creating growth and jobs in Denmark, so we are very excited to take the next step and together look at the future requirements for advanced technology”.
