Drew Marine Signal and Safety has rebranded as WesCom Signal and Rescue.

The name change comes about as a result of the Willhelmsen Group entering an agreement to acquire the technical solutions business of Drew Marine, subject to regulatory approval.

“Once the completion of the impending sale of the Drew Marine Technical Solutions business to the Wilhelmsen Group, announced earlier this year, goes through, the Drew Marine name and Trident logo will no longer be available for use by other group companies not included within the sale,” explained WesCom Signal and Rescue VP, Claire Newland.

“WesCom Signal and Rescue’s business operations will continue unchanged, manufacturing and marketing its brands: Comet, Pains Wessex, Oroquieta and Aurora exactly as before.”

Products, personnel and distributors will also remain the same.

Acquisition
Drew Marine, formerly Chemring Marine, acquired the marine pyrotechnics business from Chemring Group in 2012 and has operated under the company name Drew Marine Signal and Safety since.

“This latest company name change will enable the business to continue to operate effectively and independently well into the foreseeable future,” added Ms Newland.

WesCom Signal and Rescue is headquartered in Havant, UK.
