Vickers Trims Capacity


Vickers, the UK engineering group, hinted that it may rationalise the manufacturing capacity of its marine division following acquisition of the Ulstein's technology and equipment assets. Shipbuilding assets were not included in the takeover and will continue independently as Ulstein Mekaniske Verksted Holding ASA. Speaking at Nor-Shipping in Oslo, chief executive Baron Paul Buysse admitted that the integration of the Vickers and Ulstein marine technology businesses could involve some plant closures. However, he added that Vickers was keen to expand in North America and the Asia-Pacific region. Vickers Ulstein Marine Systems will be headquartered in Ulsteinvik, Norway. Morten Ulstein, the managing director of Ulstein's propulsion business, will lead the marine operation. There are four divisions in the new set-up - handling propulsion, engines, deck machinery plus marine technology and global support. Propulsion accounts for 50% of sales. It includes the Kamewa, Aquamaster, Bird-Johnson and Brown Brothers operations. More information: LLP News Webrief
