Strengthens SKF’s position as global specialist offering complete life cycle & asset management solutions for the marine industry


SKF today announced they have signed an agreement to acquire German-based ship components provider Blohm + Voss Industries (BVI) from Star Capital Partners. SKF betalte ca. 80 MEUR for 100% af BVI's aktiekapital og overtog nettolån på 18 MEUR. Handelen er underlagt relevante myndigheds- og aktionær- The acquisition is in line with SKF’s strategy to further position itself as the preferred application development partner offering a full asset life cycle management approach for marine solutions.

Blohm + Voss Industries er en af de førende producenter og serviceleverandører af kvalitetsudstyr til kritiske applikationer inden for marinesektoren. Dette inkluderer blandt andet akselkomponenter (tætninger og lejer), stabilisatorer og oliefiltreringssystemer. The company has around 400 employees and originates from the Blohm + Voss shipyard, which was founded in 1877. Sales for 2011/2012 were around 100 MEUR with an operating margin in line with the SKF Group.

“We are excited to have Blohm + Voss Industries become part of the SKF Group. The synergies between the SKF and BVI marine portfolio will support SKF to be an even stronger partner for critical shaft components to the marine industry and marine specific applications for both OEM and end users,” says Tom Johnstone, SKF President and CEO.

“We are very positive about joining the SKF Group. The combination of our technologies, strategies, and organisations will be a good basis to make SKF an even stronger supplier to the marine industry,” says Martin Johannsmann, CEO Blohm + Voss Industries.

Summary and rationale:
• SKF entered the marine business in the 1940’s and currently offers products, engineering and services to the marine industry, mainly self-aligning bearings and coupling products
• BVI operations and capabilities have a very strong fit with the SKF marine strategy
• BVI products are of similar design parameters and production processes to other SKF seals and bearing products
• Complements SKF’s existing marine product and service range
Det vil samtidig styrke SKF’s tilstedeværelse på markedet gennem BVI’s datterselskaber i Shanghai, Honkong, Singapore, Busan, Andover og Kobe samt salgsagenter og servicestationer verden over.
• Provides a strong customer network with shipyards and ship owners, in addition to SKF’s strong position towards OEM’s (propeller makers)
Det vil styrke SKF, som en af de førende leverandører af blandt andet tætningsløsninger og hydrodynamiske lejer, som er en speciel lejetype til marineindustrien.
