BSI A/S Group Acquires OYS Rigging

BSI Group acquires OYS Rigging, and with immediate effect takes ownership of the OYS Rigging brand, and all associated assets.

“We are delighted to be owners of OYS, with a UK facility and working together with the knowledgeable manufacturing team” comments Morten Madsen, Managing Director of BSI A/S. “This purchase will see the BSI Group become the largest supplier of rod rigging and we look forward to providing a truly exceptional global product.”

Not included in the acquisition are OYS Thrusters and OYS Hydraulics. With immediate effect, these products will continue to be provided by Ocean Marine Systems – OMS. Until today Ocean Marine Systems has been under the same ownership as OYS explains Mark Barwell former Sales Director at OYS and current Sales Director at OMS.

“This recent development sees the brands dividing and creating their own paths,” comments Barwell. “This is an exciting time for all involved.”

The new management of OYS and the management of Ocean Marine Systems look to provide clarity for customers.
