EDI-Systems integrated January 1st
Happy New Year! We kick off 2021 by officially welcoming EDI-Systems to Maritech. Through this acquisition we are now a leading provider of third-party logistics solutions for cold storage.
Third-party logistics specialists
Our new colleagues are specialized in WMS systems for warehouse hotels and cold storage. Since 1996, they have built a leading position in the Norwegian market, and the EDI-Systems solutions are used by a broad range of seafood companies and other companies that rent out cold storage services.
Announcing the acquisition in August 2020, our CEO Odd Arne Kristengård said: “We are delighted to welcome EDI-Systems as the newest members of the Maritech team. Their solutions, customers and expertise are a natural fit with our business and further plans. Many of our customers already use their systems; they will benefit from an improved cold storage integration. EDI-Systems also delivers solutions for quality registration for fisheries and that likewise will be a good fit in the Maritech product range. At the same time, we will strengthen our expertise regarding 3rd-party warehousing and will now cover an even larger part of the value chain in the seafood industry. Furthermore, this acquisition also represents opportunities in other industries, related to new and existing logistics customers.”
Joining our Maritech loigistics team
The employees of EDI-Systems have now become a part of our Maritech logistics team, including the founders Robert Hansen and Are Selnes who have until now each had a 50% ownership interest. “We are proud of what we have built and are now looking forward to new milestones as part of Maritech,” says Hansen. “There is no doubt that our solutions fit well into the Maritech portfolio, and we have a number of common denominators – also beyond the anchoring in seafood and software. It is also exciting to be part of a skilled logistics team, where we probably have a lot to learn from each other. We see this as a win-win for both EDI-Systems and Maritech and look forward to working together in the time to come.”
