Swathe Services has become a distributor for HYPACK, following the closing of Del Norte, the UK partner company to HYPACK.
Swathe Services is taking on responsibility for sales and maintenance of HYPACK software solutions, after managing director of Del Norte Laurie Smith announced his retirement, which led to the closing of the company.
Swathe Services will continue to run bi-annual Multi-Beam Echo Sounder HYPACK training courses to improve surveyors’ knowledge and efficiency using HYPACK software, the company said.
A spokesperson from HYPACK said: “We wish to thank Laurie for the past 20 years representing HYPACK and providing outstanding service and support to our customers in the UK. Del Norte grew the market from a handful of customers to over 200 HYPACK users and 500 licenses. We now look to Swathe Services to build on the success of Del Norte and continue to grow our user base in the UK.”
Swathe Services managing director James Williams added: “All of us here at Swathe Services wish Laurie well in his retirement. He’s been a credit to the industry during his long service.
“We are delighted to become the UK distributor of HYPACK software and look forward to the opportunity of working with Xylem UK and growing the number of HYPACK users in the UK and Ireland.”
