Aydin Marine LCD Displays – Keeping KEP’s Brilliance

Aydin Displays

As of 2016, KEPMarine, the industry leader in marine LCD displays, computers and peripherals, has been renamed Aydin Marine.

This name change comes about due to the recent acquisition by Sparton IED, parent company to Aydin Displays.

Thanks to this change, you can now count on Aydin Marine to have full access to Aydin Display / KEPMarine’s broad scope of intellectual property information, highly-efficient manufacturing process, and shared resources, allowing for further improvements in display technology. Bringing in Aydin’s know-how on how to produce high-quality ruggedized displays and peripherals, made to thrive in harsh commercial, recreational, military and industrial marine applications, we have a match made in heaven when it comes to marine LCD Displays.

Both Aydin and KEP (Kessler-Ellis Products) have been strong players in the broader military, industrial and marine markets for decades. KEP Marine has dominated in the area of marine LCD displays for some time, and now Aydin can bring its manufacturing strengths into the marine market as well.

For almost 50 years, Aydin has developed and manufactured products to operate in extreme / harsh industrial and military settings. In 2013, Aydin was acquired by Sparton Corporation, providing it with a huge leap forward in the company resources.

With the acquisition of KEP Marine LCD Displays, Aydin can now benefit from KEP’s vast experience the marine area.
