CronoMar contribution to internationalization of businesses and increase of export activities of Croatian companies

Cronomar activities are focused on new products, services and technology transfer creating exports of new maritime products from Croatia towards international markets. Products like maritime equipment, vessels, etc. are contracted for manufacturing by Croatian industry as new concepts and new designs for Croatian industry opening way towards new markets. Initially, the production is prototype products, and over time we try to standardize these products in order to rationalize manufacturing and to keep Croatian producers competitive at global markets. Some of Cronomars projects like 15 m vessel are full prototype - a complete new design from a different design company in Norway.

All the time CroNoMar is looking for new developments where prototypes of new products have been manufactured and new contracts placed in order to industrialize/standardize these products and all with aim rising and keeping the competitiveness of Croatian manufacturing industry on a global market in years to come. 

Referring Memo from 27th December 2016, here are some examples of creating new products and product development activities in Croatia.
