Almarin buys Aister

SPAIN: Floating solutions specialist Almarin has purchased the marina business unit from aluminium structures expert Aister.

Aister has installed over 30,000m (98,400ft) of pontoons in 27 countries over the past 30 years but, most recently, its focus has been on the design and build of high-performance aluminium boats. Selling the marina side of the business was thus a strategic management decision.
Recognised for its high quality marine aids to navigation, Almarin has been developing the pontoon business in Spain in conjunction with its partner Lindley Marinas. Both strengthen their capacity to respond to the market by incorporating the highly qualified Aister 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,” said Almarin CEO Aleix San Vicente.
“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.”
