Unique Maritime Group has completed the acquisition of Singaporean company Oceanvision and Oceanvision Equipment Services.
Oceanvision is the third acquisition that Unique has made in the last nine months.
Oceanvision specialises in manufacturing and supplying imaging and intervention products for sub-ocean, marine, offshore and petrochemical industries for use in hazardous areas and harsh environments.
“Opening an office in Singapore is an important milestone for the business,” said chairman and CEO of Unique Group, Harry Gandhi. “The team at Oceanvision provides us an immediate presence in the area and, with this company’s strong reputation and history, their fit within Unique Group is excellent. We will invest significantly (circa £5million) and quickly so that we can give our customers access to the full offering across our group divisions and companies. In particular, we will strengthen our engineering base to provide our full on-site engineering services to the region as well providing Capex for our diving and survey divisions to enhance their stock in the area. We also plan to recruit key personnel in the area, however the day-to-day running of the business will be continued by the current team at Oceanvision led by founder, Ian Johnson.”
Svein Gunderson, engineering manager, commented: “This is an exciting time for Oceanvision as we become part of the globally respected Unique Group. I, and the team, look forward to working with our new colleagues at Unique. The additional products and services we can now offer will be advantageous for our current customers and provide new opportunities that exist in the area.”
