Adding high-grade competences to their portfolio of system sales causes MBT GmbH, MacArtney Germany, to generate a wider field of activity in terms of geographical market coverage in Germany

MBT GmbH has acquired Bremen based CPU GmbH, provider of equipment for underwater technical systems, as of 1 April 2016. Representing a profound commitment to fully support the challenging underwater technology market in Germany, MacArtney expand their business to strengthen their system sales capacity.

CPU GmbH remains an independent entity with Christoph Reuter carrying on his job as Managing Director of the company. CPU GmbH will relocate to the Innovation and Technology  Centre of the University of Bremen and will keep their current name during a transition phase.

MacArtney motivate their acquisition of CPU with their desire and ambition to create further growth and development thus contributing to continued successful business activities as  a supplier of underwater technology systems locally as well as internationally.

- The Bremen area is a hot spot for marine science and technology in Germany, with major research organisations, shipyards, system integrators and key players in offshore wind energy, announces Torsten Turla, Managing Director of MBT GmbH, MacArtney Germany. We expect significant synergy from the acquisition and from having Christoph Reuter being part of the team in Germany.

Encouraged by a growing demand for complete and integrated underwater technology solutions, MBT GmbH benefits from being part of the MacArtney Group and enjoys unlimited access to cutting-edge engineering competences and advanced facilities at the MacArtney Group headquarters in Denmark.
