LEXMAR joins James Fisher

Singapore-based saturation diving specialist, LEXMAR, joins the James Fisher group.

JFD has expanded its command of the saturation diving market with the acquisition of a major Singapore-based company, LEXMAR, which specialises in the design and manufacture of in-built and modular saturation diving systems and is an established provider of diving equipment and services to the offshore industry.

As the only saturation diving equipment manufacturer in South East Asia, LEXMAR has built up a strong customer focused reputation and track record. The company was founded in 1996 by Marieke Barker and her late husband, Lex Barker - the LEXMAR name not only combines their names (Lex and Mar) but in Latin, it means 'law of the sea'.

LEXMAR launched its own brand of diving equipment in 2000, offering full design, engineering and manufacturing packages for both modular and in-built saturation diving systems, and has maintained a service contract for the Singapore Navy since 2003.

For JFD, these newly combined capabilities, coupled with LEXMAR's strategically located Singapore manufacturing base, means that the fast growing markets of China, Japan, Indonesia and the wider Asia Pacific region can be more effectively served with an enhanced product range and broader equipment specification.

Commenting on the acquisition LEXMAR's managing director, Marieke Barker says;

"The opportunity to become part of JFD and the wider James Fisher group allows LEXMAR to better meet the needs of our clients through an expanded range of equipment. We are all looking forward to this new chapter in our development."

JFD's managing director, Giovanni Corbetta, adds;

"We are delighted to welcome LEXMAR into the James Fisher group as part of JFD. The expertise and skills of LEXMAR brings James Fisher to the forefront of diving equipment and saturation diving systems capability allowing us to better service the needs of our customers in these regions and achieve our growth ambitions at a faster rate."

While continuing to service its existing customer contracts LEXMAR will be starting work on JFD's huge submarine rescue project for the Indian navy, contributing to the delivery of hyperbaric escape chambers for the Australian navy, as well as taking charge of delivering the internal hyperbaric chambers and life support equipment for the self-propelled hyperbaric lifeboats (SPHL) submarine rescue services.
