Wilhelmsen completes acquisition of 100 % of Stromme from Seven Seas in line with growth strategy for the Ships Service portfolio of maritime essentials
When established in 1971, Stromme became the first specialised cargo hold cleaning company in the marine industry. Today the company is a leading global player with extensive specialised experience within their field, providing customers with high quality solutions and innovations for cargo hold cleaning. Stromme will now transfer all of its people, business and assets into Wilhelmsen Ships Service. Stromme will further retain its brand and operate as a fully owned subsidiary of Ships Service.
It is business as usual for now, with both Stormme and Ships Service operating as standalone companies. Moving forward the two teams will spend an initial period together to learn and join forces, and define how the best of both Stromme and Ships Service can be combined into something that customers will appreciate even more. More information on this will come at a later date.
