In August 2015 Imtech Marine announced that Pon Holdings, an international trading and service company, and Parcom Capital, a mid-market private equity fund, had begun the process of acquiring the Dutch maritime service provider. However, until October 21 there had been no confirmation that the takeover was complete. can report that the European Commission has approved the takeover of Imtech Marine.

“Now that the acquisition is completed, a new era arises for Imtech Marine,” explains René ten Brinke, CEO of Imtech Marine. “In 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.”

Imtech Marine will continue to operate independently and it is hoped that the acquisition will allow the company to realise its growth ambitions as well as provide peace of mind for employees.

“We are extremely happy with Pon Holdings and Parcom Capital as the new ‘owners’ of Imtech Marine,” continued ten Brinke. “Both are highly professional companies, with extensive experience in the maritime industry, it couldn’t have been a better scenario for us.”

With the new start for Imtech Marine also comes a new name. However, the new name will not be announced until November 5 at the maritime Europort exhibition in Rotterdam.
