Duncan Marine Electric

The history behind the company…

Following his early passion for the sea and boats, Chris Duncan started his career as an engineering apprentice with Mermaid Marine. Then with particular interests in marine research and in developing new ideas Chris moved to study electronics within the National Maritime Institute (NMI) originally Ship Division at the National Physical Laboratory (NPL), later to become the British Maritime Institute (BMT).

Following on, Chris joined Sonardyne Ltd, the world leaders in subsea acoustic technology and design, leading into specific roles in a variety of cutting edge product developments such as position location and Thru Water Communications (TWC). This opportunity provided Chris with a unique insight of the challenges facing electronic systems in underwater applications and a further appreciation of specialist marine engineering methods.

Moving away for a period from the marine business, Chris was then able to develop his knowledge across a broader section of industry, this time within broadcast engineering. With leading companies Basys Ltd and Broadcast Technology Ltd, Chris enjoyed various roles including head of production, customer service manager and worldwide technical sales which provided him with key experience in building up company operations and business development. Chris was able to have a ‘hands on’ approach in broadcast engineering within a wide spectrum of sectors throughout the industry and was also able to play a key role in the emergence and roll out of digital TV.

Chris’s extensive experience and considerable knowledge built from a wide scope of environments empowered him to consider combining his skill set and passion for the marine industry and so Duncan Marine Electric was launched in 2002.

Duncan Marine Electric – a company focused on reliable, innovative and safe electrical solutions for those who’s business or pleasure is the sea and inland waters.
