The Hutchwilco Group has acquired Denray Marine Services.

Denray’s operations centre around liferaft, lifeboat and lifeboat davit supply and service for the commercial shipping market. Denray distributes Viking liferafts in New Zealand and offers helicopter underwater escape training (HUET).

Hutchwilco also operates Wilco Marine Services, which focusses on liferaft and safety solutions for superyachts and recreational boats, as well as Actron Fire Services, specialising in servicing and inspection of fire protection systems.

This acquisition will enable Hutchwilco to increase its presence in the market and expand its range. The companies will continue to operate independently.
