SeaStar Solutions (formerly known as Teleflex Marine), a manufacturer and distributor of marine steering, control systems, and engine & drive parts, has acquired Mallory Marine from Prestolite Performance, a manufacturer and distributor of auto racing, performance and appearance products based in Cleveland, Ohio.
Mallory Marine markets a complete line of inboard and outboard engine replacement parts, oil and lubricants. Not affected by today's announcement is Mallory Ignition, the sister company to Mallory Marine, which remains a core brand of Prestolite Performance.
"This acquisition adds to the extensive product line and distribution services we provide through our Sierra division," said Yvan Cote, President and CEO of SeaStar Solutions. "It further strengthens our capacity to meet the needs of marine dealers for superior quality parts, extensive product availability and fast delivery."
SeaStar Solutions say they intend to continue to pursue an aggressive growth strategy focusing on new product developments and acquisitions. Their Optimus 360 Joystick Docking System for outboard and stern drive boats as well as their Xtreme Steering System both won NMMA Innovation Awards and have provided exciting new OEM and aftermarket sales opportunities. The company has also made key acquisitions in the marine market, including INCA Molded Products and Detwiler Jack Plates.
