B Hepworth & Co Ltd has announced their recent acquisition of Monitor Marine International, a privately owned company established 30 years ago to develop and manufacture a wide range of precision engineered stainless steel marine deckware and interior fittings for superyacht and other boat builders.
Jonathan Eddy, CEO of Hepworth commented, “We are pleased to announce this highly strategic transaction and are excited to welcome the Monitor Marine team to Hepworth. Monitor Marine is an excellent acquisition and complements our existing marine product portfolio, offering the opportunity to expand our presence and product range in this very important market sector.”
According to Hepworth, these products are the ‘ultimate in superyacht hardware’ and include deck fillers, hatch handles, latches and cleats, as well as helicopter tie-downs which were developed from a military requirement for securing helicopters on warships at sea.
Hepworth International manufactures the Wynn and Hepworth range of performance wiper systems including controllers and washing equipment for marine, rail and commercial automotive applications.
