Unitor Ships Service Acquires G a m l e n M a r i ne

Norwegian-based Unitor Ships Service AS recently acquired the Gamlen Marine Chemicals activity of Sybron Chemicals Inc., Birmingham, N.J.

Gamlen Marine Chemicals, one of Unitor's competitors, has a worldwide network for distribution and sale of marine chemicals and services.

Gamlen Marine is one of the leading suppliers in this field and has gained special recognition for its cleaning and maintenance chemicals.

The purchase of Gamlen Marine is a strategic investment for Unitor.

It means a major strengthening of Unitor's competitiveness through an expanded product range, improved product availability and a major reinforcement of expertise within the chemical sector—both at headquarters and in the sales network.

The acquisition is expected to contribute to further improvement of Unitor's results during 1988.

Unitor already possesses a strong marine chemical activity through its Perolin Marine operation. Together with Gamlen Marine, this operation will now be integrated into Unitor Marine Chemicals as a separate division.

Its headquarters will continue to be located at Rickmansworth outside London. The product lines of both Perolin and Gamlen Marine will be integrated into one common line containing the best products from both ranges.
