The anonymous customer will distribute Shakespeare's antennas across SE Asia

Marine antenna design firm Shakespeare Marine has reported its largest order for the Asian market, totalling almost US$250,000.

Confirmed this month and already in manufacture, Shakespeare Marine says it is proud to have received an order for more than 2,000 SSB and VHF antennas for the marine sector in Asia. The largest single order since the global pandemic hit, this order is a catalyst for the brand’s regrowth in the region.

“The Asian market is an important market for our brand, however, the Covid pandemic made it difficult for us to travel and present solutions for the customer,” says Dave Manasseh, European sales manager for Shakespeare Marine. We are delighted to be able to work closely together again and we look forward to further growing our presence in this territory.”

The customer – who remains anonymous – will be distributing the antennas across the entire Southern Asia region. The primary uses for the antennas will be for light commercial shipping and fishing.
