Transfluid officially announces the acquisition of Bellmarine
With an ever-increasing focus on green propulsion technologies two well known companies have combined forces. Both share an optimistic vision for sustainable propulsion for marine applications and its future developments. Their newly combined synergies provide unique hybrid and electrical marine propulsion products for the most demanding applications.
To expand and develop its range of electric propulsion products Transfluid has acquired 100% of the shares in IDTechnology B.V., the owner of the well-known Bellmarine brand. This strategic move provides Transfluid a broad array of solutions that satisfies most needs for electric and hybrid powertrains for the boating and vessel market.
Headquartered in Gallarate Italy and with subsidiaries located around the world Transfluid has been a market leader for power transmission equipment for more than 60 years. Recently Transfluid developed a comprehensive range of hybrid and electric propulsion systems and started the design and production of permanent magnet electric machines, a critical component in electric propulsion.
The Bellmarine brand is the leader of electric propulsion in the Netherlands and is well established in the European market. The joining of the two companies enables Transfluid to offer electric and hybrid solutions suitable for all kinds of marine, inland water, and off-shore applications as well as a range of propulsion power that is unique to the world.
Bellmarine will continue to operate from The Netherlands maintaining its own distinct brand identity. Marien Schoonen, the founder of Bellmarine, will remain with the company focusing on sales and product development.
