Tritech Joins General Oceans AS

Tritech International Limited has been announced as the latest company to become part of General Oceans AS: an umbrella company specializing in underwater technology and headquartered in London.

The deal has been in the make for some months and will see Tritech joining Nortek, Reach Robotics and Strategic Robotic Systems as part of the common holding company General Oceans AS. It is anticipated that this exciting partnership will be beneficial to all parties and will open up new opportunities for Tritech, its customers and the rest of General Oceans AS.

David Bradley, Managing Director at Tritech, commented:

“We are delighted to be joining General Oceans AS. The synergies with the other companies in the existing partnership are obvious and our expectation is that Tritech can contribute to making a difference in the world of ocean technology by bringing its sensors to the group. The opportunity to grow together through these synergies and ultimately making the subsea industry that bit safer for all involved is exciting and a welcome challenge to all of us at Tritech.”

Tritech began in 1991 and has become established as a market leader in underwater technology. Tritech is known for designing and manufacturing robust, reliable underwater sensors including multibeam imaging sonars, mechanical scanning sonars and cameras, as well as offering 24-hour support for those products, 365 days a year.

With this exciting change of ownership, customers can expect the same high quality, robust products from Tritech: products which can be relied upon in the most extreme environments on the planet. Tritech will continue to offer the same high level of customer service and support and this partnership with General Oceans is expected to open up Tritech’s global sales network even more.

Tritech’s purpose, values and vison for the future are closely aligned with those of General Oceans and it is expected that they will continue to make working in water safer through shared projects and expertise.

Atle Lohrmann, founder of Nortek and General Ocean’s President said:

“As the second acoustic sensor company to join General Oceans, we believe that Tritech’s strong brand recognition, solid quality tradition, and highly reputed customer support will expand and enhance our ability to provide outstanding products to our customers. We are delighted to know that we can now collaborate with the proud people at all levels within the Tritech organization, including production, development, and sales.”

All at Tritech and General Oceans are excited about this new partnership and are looking forward to working together.
