Globetech was founded in 2011 with the desire to establish a company focused solely on providing marine and offshore IT solutions.

At first, we delivered clean IT solutions for the shipping industry. Soon, clients started asking for assistance in other areas, such as communication and CCTV systems.

Then, in less than five years, we succeeded with assigning contracts with over 70 ships and offices worldwide - which all lay the foundation to create the company we are today.

Today, we have a “customized-to-fit” approach towards our clients, and we boast a range of different IT, Communications and CCTV solutions. In essence, we provide you with a single point of contact for all your needs – with us, you don’t have to deal with different vendors in your operating phase.

We operate our own highly secured datacenter environment located at a former military complex, which support all our operations and meet all the safety requirements needed.

Globetech continue to grow rapidly, and we are currently eleven employees working exclusively with ships. We are actively looking at areas where we can improve, and our goal is to continuously strive to be the preferred marine partner and provider of operational IT, Communication and CCTV solutions.

Globetech – A matter of operational ICT-safety for marine and offshore clients.
