London-headquartered survival technology company Survitec has completed the acquisition of Blue Anchor Fire & Safety, a survival solutions provider to the offshore energy industries among others.
The completion, announced November 2, follows Survitec’s May purchase of Norway’s Hansen Protection.
Survitec said Blue Anchor was “an excellent fit for Survitec. This investment allows us to enhance our capabilities across the region.”
Blue Anchor, which offers survival support including servicing and liferaft rental and product supply, operates an MCA-approved liferaft service station in Boyndie, Scotland. It is one of only a handful of UKAS-accredited companies certified to carry out gas cylinder testing in the country.
“The transaction supports our objective to improve our coverage in attractive markets,” said Survitec. Blue Anchor co-founder Scott Skinner will continue as operations manager.
