UNIMAR

Profile

UNIMAR is New Zealand's specialist marine support company, offering services and solutions to the fast growing offshore oil and gas industry and New Zeeland's deep-sea fishing fleet, which operates throughout the Asia-Pacific region.
As part of the company's ongoing development strategy, in December 2008 it secured development capital via a private placement of shares; this exercise also brought in Port Nelson and Bovey Offshore as strategic partners, boosting its local infrastructure and marine plant portfolio.
