Viking has increased its global volume, reach and technical competencies for marine firefighting equipment services.

Viking Life-Saving Equipment - the global safety solutions and service provider, announced its acquisition of Drew Marine’s Fire Safety and Rescue division this month.

“Welcoming on board one of the top three marine fire service providers in the world, the acquisition is in alignment with Viking’s long-running strategy to be the world’s leading one-stop solutions and service provider, and a trusted safety partner for the marine and offshore industry,” said Viking CEO, Henrik Uhd Christensen.

This deal follows last year’s major acquisition of Norsafe, which saw Viking achieve its status as a high-quality lifeboat, rescue boat and davit OEM, while boosting the company’s profile as a multi-brand lifeboat service provider.

Along the same lines, Drew Marine’s Fire Safety and Rescue division brings further strength to Viking’s portfolio and boosts its profile as an end-to-end supplier of full-scope maritime safety solutions.
