Hamburg, Augsburg, September 29, 2021 – The globally active RENK Group, headquartered in Augsburg, had already acquired the Hamburg-based engineering office E-MS last year. The next phase of the integration has been completed with the change of the managing director this summer.
Founder Peter Andersen handed over the helm to Christoph Fenske, who will take over the position as Managing Director at E-MS in addition to his position as Head of the Special Gear Units Division at RENK Group. Peter Andersen will remain associated with E-MS as a consultant until the end of the year. All jobs and the office in Hamburg will be retained. Both companies have been working on joint projects for many years. For example, E-MS provided the electrical engineering for the propulsion and power distribution system on the sailing yacht “SY A”, while RENK supplied the gear units.
“The financial stability of the RENK Group will allow E-MS to offer not only engineering services in the future, yet also packages with hardware such as switchgear, electric motors and generators,” explains Christoph Fenske. “This will also result in many synergies between E-MS and the RENK Group, which will benefit our customers.”
The two companies are currently pursuing joint projects in the mega yacht, research vessel, commercial ship and marine sectors.
