White & Black Corporate Team Advise General Oceans on acquisition of Tritech

General Oceans acquisition of Tritech

The White & Black Corporate Team, led by Jonathan Williamson, recently advised client General Oceans, a world leader in ocean technology, on its acquisition of Tritech International Limited, a specialist in imaging sonars and equipment used in low-visibility marine construction and subsea applications.

Tritech has served the offshore energy and defence industries for over 30 years and will strengthen the General Oceans group of companies’ already substantial capabilities in subsea sensors, serving applications from large oceanographic campaigns to mission-specific remotely operated vehicles.

Atle Lohrmann, founder of Nortek and General Ocean’s President said:

“As the second acoustic sensor company to join General Oceans, we believe that Tritech’s strong brand recognition, solid quality tradition, and highly reputed customer support will expand and enhance our ability to provide outstanding products to our customers. We are delighted to know that we can now collaborate with the proud people at all levels within the Tritech organization, including production, development, and sales.”
