Blue Sea Systems, Bellingham makers of marine electrical systems, was acquired by Power Products LLC, a global marine electrical company, on Oct. 31, 2014.
Michele Goldsmith, Power Products spokesperson, said the acquisition won’t change anything for the 83 full-time employees at Blue Sea Systems’ Bellingham facility.
“It’s just business as usual,” Goldsmith said. “The name will stay same, the leadership will stay the same, The facility and supply chain will stay the same.”
Goldsmith said the two companies’ products are similar, but that they would compliment each other.
In a press release, Blue Sea Systems CEO Scott Renne said he views Power Products ownership as a great fit for his company’s customers and employees.
“We are very pleased to partner with Power Products as we take Blue Sea Systems to its next stage of growth,” he said.
Power Products has about 1,000 employees around the world, including at a manufacturing facility in Mexico, European headquarters in Amsterdam, and a sourcing facility in Shanghai, in addition to its U.S. headquarters in Menomonee Falls, Wisconsin.
