Almarin acquires Aister's marinas business unit
ALMARIN, specialized in floating solutions for harbours, has reached an agreement with AISTER, an expert in aluminium structures to acquire its Marina Business unit. With more than 30.000 meters of pontoons installed in twenty-seven countries in the past thirty years, AISTER MARINAS is a reference in the construction of marinas and recreational ports. In recent years, however, AISTER has been focusing its efforts on the design and construction of high-performance aluminium boats and consequently its management took the strategic decision to divest its marina business unit.
ALMARIN is recognized for its high-quality marine aids to navigation equipment, particularly its floating beacons in which it continues to invest and innovate. Over the past five years ALMARIN has also been developing the pontoon business area in Spain in conjunction with its partner LINDLEY MARINAS.
With the objective of further developing the marina business unit, ALMARIN reached an agreement with AISTER at the end of July 2022. Through this acquisition, ALMARIN and LINDLEY MARINAS strengthen their capacity to respond to the market, through the incorporation of highly qualified technical staff as well as resources for site work and new facilities in Vigo.
“The knowledge and experience of the AISTER team is by far the most important asset we have brought onboard; it makes me very proud that all the staff at the marina unit accepted this new challenge. Our goal is to become the leading player in marina construction in our territory. We have all the ingredients: team, knowledge, product, experience, and resources to provide a first-class service”, says Aleix San Vicente, CEO of Almarin.
