Imtech Marine Acquisition Finalized
The European Commission has approved the takeover of Imtech Marine by Pon Holdings and Parcom Capital. The purchase was originally announced in August, along with the bankruptcy of the group Royal Imtech including Imtech Capital, Imtech and Imtech Group.
Imtech Marine will now continue to operate independently and has already stated ambitions for growth. René ten Brinke, CEO of Imtech Marine, says, “Now that the acquisition is completed, a new era arises for Imtech Marine. The coming years, our aim will be to further strengthen our leading position in the maritime sector, with dedicated focus on our customers, employees and suppliers. With this new start comes a new company name, which we will announce on November 5 at the maritime Europort exhibition in Rotterdam.”
Imtech Marine operates as a full-service provider and system integrator of tailor-made ship systems. The company employs almost 2,500 staff, of which over 900 employees are based in The Netherlands. More than 85 offices are positioned in 30 countries along strategic shipping routes and close to shipbuilding centers.
Imtech Marine’s purchasers are Pon, one of the largest Dutch family businesses and an international trading and servicing company, and Parcom Capital, a mid-market private equity firm.
