Nobeltec is a leading developer of PC-based marine navigation software programs and supplier of electronic charts, hardware, and accessories.
The Company was established in 1993 by two ex-Microsoft engineers and avid boaters whose idea was to produce a Windows® based software program that displayed electronic navigation charts and tracked vessel positions with a GPS. The Company’s first product, Navtrek, was a huge success. Due to the increasing popularity of PCs over the next few years, sales took off. Soon after, Nobeltec broadened its product line with the introduction of Navtrek 97 and Navtrek Solo.
In October 2009, Signet S.A. entered into an agreement to acquire Nobeltec. Nobeltec is now part of Signet’s portfolio, which includes the ownership of MaxSea & MapMedia among other marine navigation companies.
