TRELLEBORG, Sweden – Trelleborg Offshore & Construction has signed an agreement to acquire Marimatech A/S, a Danish company that designs and manufactures marine positioning and piloting systems. The company primarily specializes in the development of software used for docking and mooring ships offshore and in ports.
Trelleborg says the acquisition will enhance its current docking and mooring solutions portfolio, strengthening the company’s offering as a turnkey supplier of systems for both ship and terminal owners. It is expected to be completed in 4Q 2015.
Richard Hepworth, president of Trelleborg’s marine systems operation, said: “Marimatech’s navigation and ship positioning product line uses the latest ‘smart’ technology and can be utilized in other applications. This technology can be integrated with our existing product range, as we look to take a smarter approach to port and terminal efficiency, and extend the automation that is becoming increasingly well-established on the land side, to the jetty side too.”
Marimatech’s global operation is headquartered in Aarhus, Denmark, with a production facility on site. The company has in-house design, manufacturing and project management capacity, and employs about 25 people.
