Thrane Service Partnership

Thrane Service Partnership – Mackay Marine Service is proud to partner with Thrane & Thrane (COBHAM) offering two distinct types of service for Thrane products – OnBoard Service Centers (OSC) and Thrane Regional Work Shop (RWS) Americas (products shipped for repair). See details of both programs below:

Thrane On-Board Service Centers (OSC):
Mackay hosts three Thrane On-Board Service Centers (the most of any global Thrane service agent).  An OSC is designed to provide premier service for Thrane and SAILOR brand marine radio and satellite communications equipment.  Thrane stipulates that OSCs staff a minimum of two factory–trained technicians; stock a full range of spare parts, and achieve exemplary first-time-fix-rates.
