Rutter celebrates 20 years of providing innovative technology solutions to the marine industry

Sep 17, 2018

St. John’s, NL – This week Rutter staff celebrated the twentieth anniversary of the company with corporate events at their head office in St. John’s.


In 1998, Rutter was incorporated to meet the emerging demand for Voyage Data Recorders (VDRs) and general manufacturing engineering services. In 2003, Rutter expanded its product offerings to include the sigma S6 line of specialty radar processing systems, where the company maintains its focus today. In 2012, Rutter acquired OceanWaveS GmbH of Germany, adding their WaMoS II radar-based wave and surface current measurement technology to the sigma S6 portfolio.


Over the past twenty years, a combination of innovative product development, customer engagement & service, and strong Canadian management has resulted in industry-leading radar technology. The sigma S6 suite, which spans ice management & navigation, oil spill detection, small target surveillance, and wave & surface current analysis, is recognized globally as an essential component of specialized marine operations.


“The competitive position that Rutter enjoys in the international marine market is a combined result of exceptional product research & development, service and sales support over the past twenty years,” said Fraser Edison, President of Rutter. “We have enjoyed celebrating this achievement with our incredible staff and look forward to another twenty years of successful innovation.”


Rutter Inc. is an enterprise focused on providing innovative technologies and engineering solutions. Rutter’s global network supplies technologies to improve efficiency and safety in the marine, defense, transportation, oil and gas sectors from its headquarters in the province of Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada.
