Connecticut marine manufacturer changes name

Marine instrument manufacturer Thomas G. Faria Corp., known for products under the brand name Faria, officially changed its name to Faria Beede Instruments.

Connecticut-based Faria purchased New Hampshire-based Beede Instruments a year ago and recently completed the integration of the two companies.

“We will continue in our strategic direction of utilizing our integrated strengths to provide innovative new technology, along with the unprecedented service and quality that our customers have come to expect,” Faria Beede Instruments president and CEO David Hickey said in a statement. “Our new company logo illustrates not only our passion for innovation, but the global market penetration the completed integration provides for our products.”

One of the few remaining vertically integrated ISO9001 U.S. manufacturers of NMEA 2000, J1939 and SmartCraft instrumentation, Faria Beede will feature its combined product range this week at booth 1333 of the International BoatBuilders’ Exhibition & Conference, which starts Tuesday at the Tampa (Fla.) Convention Center.
