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.

Busy times. Twin bow thrusters being assembled for a 90m (295ft) new build motoryacht. 142kW of power each, driven via PM electric motors. Plus a matching OMS swing retracting stern thruster aft. #OMS #OMSthrusters #bowthrusters ...

Nice to catch up with our colleagues @nautorswan_official today. Just checking on their little performance ClubSwan 125 with its super lightweight titanium OMS retractable thruster, whilst she is here in the uk. Lovely build, lovely crew. Onwards to the next event for them. The fastest yachts in the world use OMS gear. We build the lightest without compromise. #OMS #nautourswan #clubswan125 #swanyachts #OMSthrusters ...

By using modern soft composite technology, OMS are making lighter hydraulic rams. The use of titanium and high load strops allows us to hydraulically seal whilst allowing us to reduce deflection on an unloaded but extended piston rod. 6000mm stroke and 45000kg BL rams under construction now at OMS. Beautiful SK99 ropework from our friends @marlowropes
