Zeaborn Group has announced they have taken over the business operations of Rickmers-Linie, including NPC Projects. In addition to the business of Rickmers-Linie, Zeaborn also takes over the business operations of MCC Marine Consulting & Contracting, which is active as bunker and chartering broker. The corresponding contracts between the Rickmers Group and Zeaborn were signed on February 7, 2017. The execution of the transaction is subject to antitrust clearance.

“With the growth of our fleet, we were faced with the challenge of building a global organization. Everyone who knows the shipping industry knows that this is a very challenging task in our time. In this respect, it’s a fortune for our development that Rickmers-Linie was available at the right time, “explains Jan Hendrik Többe, Managing Partner of Zeaborn.

“Just like us, Rickmers-Linie and NPC Projects are concentrating on the transport of break bulk, heavy lifts and project cargoes. They have an excellent reputation, have close, long-term customer relationships and stand for reliability, quality, innovation and technical competence. With its line-up services and the tramp business of NPC, Rickmers-Linie connects the most important business centers in the world. In this unique combination, we are now able to offer our customers even more tailor-made transport solutions, “adds Ove Meyer, who is also Managing Partner of Zeaborn.

“Rickmers-Linie gets new powerful shareholders who want to expand their activities in the MPP segment. With Zeaborn, we have the right partners to play an active part in the consolidation of the heavy and MPP sector in a currently difficult market situation, and to offer our customers excellent service, safety and reliability on an economically stable basis,” added Ulrich Ulrichs, CEO of Rickmers-Linie.
