Genoa, Italy, headquartered classification society RINA has acquired the entire share capital of Logimatic Solutions, a Danis-based software company with a strong maritime portfolio. The company, with a turnover of about 6 million euros, will be fully integrated within the RINA Group and its nearly 50 employees will continue in the current structure from its offices in Denmark, Singapore and Chile.
RINA says the acquisition is in line with its strategic plan and will boost its knowledge of digital solutions, providing support to customers for efficient and sustainable business operations.
The move will add the Logimatic SERTICA fleet management solution to the RINA portfolio of maritime offerings, while other Logimatic solutions will complement RINA’s businesses in other sectors. SERTICA integrates a wide range of functions, modules and features for all areas of maritime business. It incorporates fleet maintenance, procurement management and HSQE modules to provide deeper insights into fleet operations, enabling effective monitoring, control and cost savings.
“The Logimatic Solutions business is a perfect fit for us, as it complements our technical offer of digital applications and improves our market positioning in terms of geographic proximity to our customer base,” said Ugo Salerno, CEO of RINA. “The SERTICA fleet management software has an excellent reputation and is already installed on over 1400 vessels worldwide. It extends our capabilities and is a powerful and beneficial addition to the tools we already provide to our customers in the maritime industry.”
“When RINA presented their strategy of delivering world-class digital solutions, I saw a unique opportunity,” said Lars Riisberg, CEO at Logimatic Solutions. “I truly believe that our products and organization deserve this opportunity to grow further with a strong and global company. We treasure a close relationship with our customers, and this is something I can say for sure will not change. We will continue to support and grow our SERTICA family in cooperation with RINA with the same professional, yet informal approach. This is in our DNA.”
