Gerardus Mercator (1512- 1594) lived his whole life within a very narrow geographical radius and never made any significant travels, but his intellectual interests encompassed the whole world, and beyond.
Gerardus Mercator is most famous for the “Mercator Projection,” which he debuted in his 1569 world map. Gerardus Mercator’s projection has been called “the greatest advance ever made in marine cartography.” His innovation facilitated navigation on long, trans-oceanic voyages, and it played a significant role in shaping how global trade to what it is today.
The trans-oceanic merchants of the past are the multinational conglomerates of the present. Much like Gerardus Mercator’s vision, our offering aims to provide global companies with the innovation and constant bearing they need to manage their global portfolio of entities.
