Founded in 1982 by Stephen Boucher, Airmar is a family owned and operated manufacturing company in Milford, New Hampshire. With over 30 years of experience, Airmar has become synonymous with world-class acoustic sensing technology. Our first product introduction was a transom mounted transducer for fish-finders. Today, Airmar develops and manufactures transducers for a diverse range of applications, including air-ranging industrial transducers, underwater scientific and survey transducers, weather sensing instruments and our extensive line of fish-finding transducers, headlined by our latest wide-beam Chirp products.
In October 2013 Airmar acquired long-time partner and collaborator Marport, which designs and manufactures catch control and net monitoring sensors, echo sounders, current profilers and sonar for the world’s fishing fleet.
In May 2014 Airmar opened its second manufacturing facility in Milford, New Hampshire to increase our ability to provide a diverse range of ultrasonic sensing products that best meet our customers’ requirements and demand.
Airmar products are available through our wholly owned distributors, Gemeco, located in Lake City, South Carolina and Airmar EMEA, located in St. Malo, France. Airmar distributed products are also available through our many Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) partners.
