Lamor & Markleen announce Global Partnership

Porvoo, Finland – March 11 – Lamor Corporation Ab and the Markleen Group recently signed a cooperation agreement that will form the most comprehensive and highest quality Oil Spill Response (OSR) solution network on the global market.

The combined inventory of Lamor’s current range of trusted equipment and Markleen’s innovative product line will increase the equipment and service options for customers. Markleen will increase their focus on manufacturing and R&D while Lamor will continue providing an extensive global sales and service network now reinforced by the experience and knowledge of Markleen’s international experts.

The inclusion of Markleen’s offshore boom systems, large floating storage tanks and absorbents will allow Lamor to offer more environment specific and versatile systems, including superior offshore packages. The co-operation of two market-leading companies will allow numerous opportunities to develop and provide the next generation of oil spill response solutions.

Fred Larsen, President and CEO of Lamor commented:
“The Lamor-Markleen arrangement will strengthen Lamor’s global market position as the largest and most innovative OSR solution provider. Markleen’s high quality products and efficient manufacturing processes will expand the range of superior equipment, as well as the manufacturing resources, Lamor can offer its clients. This is also essential in the event of a large-scale incident. The Uniboom series and the newly developed submersible boom, to name a few, are advanced and unique equipment options we can now offer to our customers.”

Peter Øye, CEO & President of Markleen commented:
“Lamor’s global sales network and market leading position will provide a great distribution channel for Markleen products. Together the companies will now have the best resources and capabilities in place to develop fresh, progressive solutions for our customers.”
