Tuckerton, N.J. – Milltech Marine, a global leader in marine safety specializing in Automatic Identification Systems (AIS) and communications systems, announced today it has been acquired by Jason Young, former Global Sales Director for Vesper Marine, a leading manufacturer of AIS solutions. Young has committed Milltech to continuing its legacy of exceptional customer service, while expanding its reach to small manufacturers looking to move into the American market.
“Jason was instrumental in the growth of Vesper Marine in the U.S. and he’s been tireless in his dedication to providing superior service to our customers,” said Jeff Robbins, founder, Vesper Marine. “Milltech Marine and Vesper have worked closely together for 14 years and Jason’s continual focus on innovation and exceptional product support are a perfect fit for this next chapter.

I’m a longtime fan of Milltech Marine and suspect that the company has helped a great many boaters choose the correct AIS for their situation and install it properly. In fact, while recently switching my Marine Traffic station to an Amec R150 Network Receiver, Milltech founder Doug Miller delivered some exceptionally patient technical support.
But I’m confident that Jason Young will deliver the same level of service, and will be interested to see how he expands the business. Moreover, Doug Miller will still be helping us with boat tech, now specialized in internet connectivity at:
