Kvichak Aquires MARCO Pollution Control

Monday, April 11, 2005
Kvichak Marine Industries, Inc. acquired MARCO Pollution Control, a leader in the design and manufacturing of oil spill recovery equipment. With this newly added division Kvichak will expand its product offering for its existing line of all-aluminum vessels used in the spill recovery industry – many of which utilize the MARCO Filterbelt module as the primary recovery platform. “We saw this purchase as a perfect fit for Kvichak,” said company president, Keith Whittemore. “This purchase enhances our product line by providing owners and operators with a one-stop shopping source for the complete recovery package. The MARCO product name and quality reputation will live on, now backed by the Kvichak commitment of customer service, rapid response and fast delivery.”

Kvichak’s first goal following the acquisition is to begin building an inventory of commonly used spare parts – with the initial focus on the one-foot and three-foot wide backing belts and filter pads used on the Filterbelt Oil & Debris Recovery System. “There are over 100 recovery vessels operating worldwide that utilize the Filterbelt system.” said Whittemore. “Once we get our inventory up and running, we intend to ship backing belts and pads within 24-hours of receiving an order. We recognize operators can’t afford to wait for these items during a spill.”

Existing MARCO Pollution Control customers can now contact Kvichak Marine for any of their spare parts needs, including belts and pads for the Filterbelt module. New construction vessels, complete Filterbelt modules, Capsulpumps, Sidewinders, and VOSS skimming units are also available through Kvichak.
