Trelleborg, a Swedish engineering firm, is acquiring Maritime International Inc. of Broussard, a marine fender systems company.

The deal is expected to be finalized before the end of the year. Terms were not disclosed.

Maritime International has about $24 million in annual sales in North America, Trelleborg said.

“The acquired business is a well-run business with a strong market reputation,” said Fredrik Meuller, president of Trelleborg Offshore & Construction. “With the acquisition we expand and broaden our presence in North America and obtain access not only to enlarged local production capabilities and offerings but also to solid engineering and testing expertise.”
