Stella Marine acquires Australian Davits & Cranes

Two men shaking hand confirm the business handover

Marine equipment manufacturer Stella Marine has acquired Queensland-based Australian Davits & Cranes (ADC).

Stella Marine says this strategic move expands the company’s product offering while complementing its existing portfolio to create a broader suite of premium marine equipment and services.

“We are thrilled to bring the Australian Davits & Cranes product range under our brand and welcome John Berg and his team into the Stella family,” says Gary Cooper, founder and director of Stella Marine, which is located in The Boat Works north superyacht facility on the Gold Coast.

“This strategic acquisition not only strengthens our market position but also aligns perfectly with our commitment to delivering engineered excellence in marine solutions.

“The product range of ADC is a natural fit for Stella and by joining forces, we aim to create even more value for our customers and drive innovation in the industry.”

Stella Marine says it plans to continue manufacturing the entire range of davits, cranes and hydraulic swim platforms that ADC currently offers. However, it will also be looking to develop the range further.

“We are excited to be joining the Stella team and look forward to integrating our products into the impressive production facility at Stella,” says John Berg, owner and founder of ADC. They have the capability and resources to take our range of products to an international market and continue the legacy we have built at ADC.”

Stella Marine will be presenting its full portfolio alongside the ADC product range at METSTRADE from 15-17 November 2023.
