Okeanus Science & Technology, LLC (Okeanus) announces that it has acquired the business assets of DT Marine Products, Inc. (DT Marine) of Houston, TX. This acquisition will allow Okeanus to offer for sale or rental DT’s full catalog of marine and oceanographic winches to customers around the world. The acquisition will also give Okeanus a new presence in Houston, expanding the company’s capabilities in the Gulf of Mexico region and complementing its existing offices in Houma, LA and Redmond, WA.
Founded in 1999, DT Marine has an established track record of building durable, high-quality winches, and customers have come to depend upon their reliability and effectiveness for projects around the world. DT has also constructed a number of custom-built systems for customers to meet specific project-related requirements.
“We are thrilled to be a part of the expanding Okeanus family,” said Darrell Troville, President and CEO of DT Marine. “The combination of our manufacturing capabilities with Okeanus’s Redmond-based engineered solutions team will allow us to offer a complete range of competitively priced custom and standard products.”
Okeanus was founded in Louisiana as a rental company offering a complete catalog of oceanographic, scientific research, and survey equipment. In 2016, Okeanus acquired the business assets of Sound Ocean Systems, Inc. of Redmond, WA (SOSI). Since that acquisition, Okeanus has been the exclusive source for SOSI branded winches, launch and recovery systems, deck equipment and other products.
“The addition of DT Marine to the Okeanus family is exciting as it adds to our product portfolio a proven line of dependable, industry-accepted winches, and gives us a Houston base of operations to better support customers in the Gulf of Mexico region and around the world,” said Okeanus CEO, Ted Brockett.
