With the takeover, AEGIR-Marine is significantly extending its service and product range in the field of propulsion and will also guarantee all HPS personnel, including HPS owner John Schungel, a position within AEGIR-Marine.
Speaking directly after acquisition agreement signing, John Schungel said that the company was proud of the work over the past 20 years. ”However, the time was right for us to make this decision. All of us at HPS are looking forward to an exciting future with AEGIR-Marine,” he said.
Ruud Muis, owner of AEGIR-Marine, said they were pleased to welcome the HPS name and team to AEGIR-Marine. “As fellow OEM independent specialists, their knowledge of products and service philosophy will be extremely complementary to our company. More importantly, our customers will have access to an increased propulsion portfolio,” he said.
