Our history

MCS was established in 2001 and started immediately the cooperation with Stein Sohn – Kiel. With a maritime history back to the late 1880, Stein Sohn had already started the development of their own automation system back in the 1970’s, which was in 2001 branded Vista Automation.
MCS was at that stage selected a strategic cooperation partner for the Scandinavian – and especially the Norwegian ship building market. With own engineering, service and commissioning, MCS  delivered a high number of Vista Automation systems until 2011.

In 2010, MCS co-founded the company Rockson Automation, and the product Evolution V5, was introduced as successor to meet the market demand. Now, less than a decade later, the reference list counts several hundred successful deliveries to all type of vessels, both newbuilding’s and retrofits.
