Mr. Marine acquires Atlas Marine Services in Singapore


Mr. Marine has acquired 100% of the shares in Singapore-based Atlas Marine Services Pte Ltd. With this acquisition, Mr. Marine strengthens its position in Singapore, one of the world’s busiest ports and a key global hub for testing, inspection and certification (TIC) services for the shipping industry.

Mr. Marine is the world’s leading TIC company for marine elevators and it is rapidly growing its global presence in the gas detection and ballast water treatment markets. Atlas Marine is a leading Singaporean company for gas detector calibration and certification, with a strong team of highly skilled technicians. With the acquisition of Atlas Marine, Mr. Marine will become a market leading TIC company in Singapore.

Mr. Marine’s existing Singapore team will be merged into Atlas Marine. Atlas Marine will continue to operate under its own brand name, as a Mr. Marine Company. The combined company has a team of 18 people in Singapore, which is expected to grow. Mr. Marine employs 89 people, with offices in Rotterdam (headquarters), Dubai, India, Singapore, Shanghai and Panama, plus a global network of more than 180 service engineers.

Karel Peters (pictured), CEO of Mr. Marine, said: “Shipping companies want fast, reliable, quality service worldwide. Our one-stop-shop global service for marine elevators is very successful and we are rapidly replicating our model to ballast water treatment systems, gas detectors and other onboard equipment.

“We welcome the Atlas team to the family and we are greatly looking forward to expanding our business together, in Singapore and beyond.”
