UK-based marine electronics specialist Actisense has reported a record-breaking year, with "exceptional sales figures", new premises and a range of new products.

In terms of sales, Actisense grew turnover by 12% compared to 2015. To accommodate growth, the company moved to new premises in Poole in October, giving Actisense more than twice the floor space.

Actisense has also grown its network to over 70 distributors in 40 countries, stretching from the US to New Zealand, Iceland to China and all of mainland Europe.

“What a whirlwind year it’s been for Actisense,” says CEO Phil Whitehurst. “It's been a phenomenal year of achievements and continued growth.

“Looking ahead, next year will mark the 20th anniversary of Actisense and we will be focusing on many new developments for 2017. This includes growing our network of global distributors plus creating new partnerships and business opportunities.’’

Actisense has won multiple awards in the last year. These include both the ‘Exporter of the Year’ award and ‘Business of the Year’ award at the Blackmore Vale Business Awards 2016.

Actisense also recently achieved ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 accreditation from the International Organisation for Standardisation (ISO).
