RH Marine Group launched

RH Marine Group, formerly known as Imtech Marine was introduced at the Europort exhibition in Rotterdam today.


Following the recent acquisition by Parcom Capital and Pon Holdings, Imtech Marine will now be known as RH Marine Group. RH Marine Group is built on the strong roots of the founding companies, Radio Holland and van Rietschoten & Houwens.

The two major ‘pillars’ for service and newbuild activities within Imtech Marine are also involved in the new naming structure. Radio Holland will keep its name but will have a fresh new logo. Radio Holland is the renowned global NavCom, Connectivity, On Board ICT service and maintenance brand and connects its customers to an unrivalled network of offices and support locations along the global shipping routes. It delivers unique technical service expertise that helps customers run smarter, more profitable businesses. Additionally, the Radio Holland management team has announced a strategy to strengthen the company’s offer in On Board ICT. Building on its experience of successful design and implementation of integral on-board networks, Radio Holland will provide customers with customized solutions that seamlessly align with their ICT and connectivity needs.

The newbuild pillar or former ‘Imtech Marine & Offshore’ is relaunched under the name RH Marine. RH Marine is the leading system integrator and full-service provider of state of-the-art technology to support the core processes of complex ships, with innovative solutions in Electrical, Automation systems and HVAC. As a Maritime System Integrator, RH Marine is active in a number of dedicated markets including: navy, megayachts, special vessels & ferries and cruise ships (via the specialized HVAC company Schiffbau-/Dockbautechnik in Hamburg). Its innovation focus is directed towards hybrid power solutions, future proof ship automation and performance management.

René ten Brinke, CEO of RH Marine Group comments: “The rich heritage of the founding companies, Van Rietschoten & Houwens, dating back to 1860, and Radio Holland dating back to 1916, played a key role in the new naming. With both companies’ initials being RH, it made sense for us to integrate those letters into the new naming and implement a new, sharp and colorful branding for RH Marine Group, Radio Holland and RH Marine.

Our fleet of brands including Radio Holland, RH Marine, Van Berge Henegouwen, Venteville, Techsol Marine, Elkon, Schiffbau-/Dockbautechnik and Tess will all keep individual names and branding styles and focus on their key specialisms, technology expertise and target markets to deliver customized, flexible solutions which closely align with customers’ requirements. In a sense, this is a new start and we’re looking forward to the future.”
