Nexus Sailing Instruments and Marine Electronics

Nexus Marine Electronics

NexusMastheadNexus Marine electronics was formed in September 2006 out of the manufacturing arm of Silva Group.  Back in 1933 members of what subsequently became the Silva Group were integral in the creation of the liquid-filled compass, along with headlamps for hikers, climbers and trail runners. In the early 1980’s Silva launched it’s first Marine Electronics Instrument, and by 2004 they had established a production plant in China. In 2006 Fiskars Corporation acquired Silva, and in September of that same year Nexus Marine electronics was formed. Nexus manufactures instrumentation for racing and cruising yachts. While the company is known for it’s sailing instrumentation systems, it also supplies Silva marine compasses for any type of vessel.

In September 2012, Nexus was assimilated by Garmin.
