Trelleborg Acquires Marimatech

Posted by Michelle Howard

Trelleborg has, through its business area Trelleborg Offshore & Construction, signed an agreement to acquire Marimatech A/S, a Danish company that designs and manufactures advanced marine positioning and piloting systems, primarily specializing in the development of software used for docking and mooring ships offshore and in ports.


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."


The acquisition will enhance Trelleborg's 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 the fourth quarter of 2015.

Marimatech's global operation is head quartered in Aarhus, Denmark, with a production facility on site. The company has in-house design, manufacturing and project management capacity, and employs some 25 people.


Trelleborg's marine systems operation designs, manufactures and installs bespoke fender systems, docking and mooring equipment, oil and gas transfer technology, ship performance systems and subsea buoyancy equipment for marine environments all over the world.
