Headquartered in Hunmanby, U.K., Deep Sea Electronics designs, manufacture and supplies products into the diesel engine and gen-set market while Motortech, based in Celle, Germany, supplies similar products and technologies for gaseous-fueled engines and gen-sets.

The similarities between both businesses and products are extremely complimentary, the companies said, adding that the combination of the two will provide the market with access to a range of cutting-edge technology platforms.

The formation of the business group delivers a combined workforce of more than 500 employees and a total revenue of $125 million. Both companies will remain separate legal entities, aligning strategically on future growth initiatives.

“The formation of the Controls and Automation Business Group marks the beginning of an incredibly exciting chapter for both companies and provides a solid platform for continued growth over the coming years,” said David Thomson, group president at Deep Sea who is now also group president of the new business group.

“The technical expertise within the group and the detailed understanding of diesel and gas generator technologies, gives customers direct access to a range of products and services that add value to multiple customer application environments”.

The Controls and Automation Group said it will make further announcements over the coming months related to a range of collaborative projects.
