    Bloksma Heat Exchangers

    Capturing the right strategic market

    Bloksma is a leading manufacturer of heat exchangers in marine and power applications. With its headquarters in Almere, the Netherlands, and subsidiaries in Wuhan China and Rouen France, it has built a strong position in the shipbuilding and power engine manufacturing industry. Its unique plate fin technology and production methods made Bloksma the global leader in the marine and power markets.

    During 2005-2006 Bloksma implemented a turnaround with the assistance of Stibbe Management. Its portfolio was further completed and an efficient manufacturing base was established in The Netherlands, France and China. Close cooperation with its Stibbe sister companies DTS (Diesel Technology Solutions) and SSM (Stork Services Maritime) -- especially on machining engine blocks, parts and the supply of spare parts -- strengthened its market share and tripled its turnover to €40 million.
     
    Its significant size, complete portfolio and solid market share with key OEM engine builders made Bloksma an attractive strategic acquisition for the GEA Group in Germany, a leading heat exchange manufacturer worldwide.
