LONDON -- Lloyd's Register Americas has acquired Martec, an engineering firm based in Halifax, Nova Scotia. Martec specializes in developing advanced engineering simulation technology for the design and analysis of complex structures and systems.
Martec's activities will be part of Lloyd's Register Group's marine consultancy services, and will be coordinated by Claus Myllerup, senior VP and head of Lloyd's Register technical investigations & analysis.
"This is a tremendous fit for the Lloyd's Register Group, Martec gives us access to a highly qualified team of engineers with extensive experience in structures and computer analysis," says Magnus Wollström, MD of Martec.
