Vónin, a premier developer and manufacturer of fishing gear and aquaculture equipment, has announced the takeover of Norway’s Mørenot Scotland, which now has been renamed Vónin UK Ltd and will trade as Vónin Scotland.
“This strategic step is a significant boost to our strong presence in the Scottish aquaculture market and underscores our deep commitment to this vital industry,” Vónin CEO Hjalmar Petersen stated.
“Mørenot Scotland, with its impressive operations in Scalloway in Shetland and Scalpay on the Hebrides, and a dedicated team of 28 employees, perfectly reflects Vónin’s ethos of delivering exceptional quality and service,” Mr. Petersen added. “As specialists in manufacturing and servicing nets and moorings for aquaculture, Mørenot Scotland has been a prominent name in the region, and now, as Vónin Scotland, it’s set to reach new heights.”
“This takeover marks a landmark moment in our history,” the CEO went on to say. “We have steadily grown our presence in Scotland, emerging as a key supplier in the local aquaculture industry. With Vónin Scotland, we’re not just consolidating our position but also gearing up to bring even more innovation and excellence to the market.”
David Goodlad, Managing Director at Vónin Scotland, had an equally enthusiastic remark on the milestone event. “Becoming part of Vónin opens fantastic new opportunities,” he said. “The combination of Vónin’s strong market reputation and our local know-how is a powerful one. We’re looking forward to an exciting future and achieving great things together.”
Since its founding in 1969 in the Faroe Islands, Vónin has grown from local roots into a global force in aquaculture and fishing solutions, known for its high-quality products tailored for challenging conditions. The company further described the takeover of Mørenot Scotland as “yet another step in Vónin’s journey of expansion and commitment to the global aquaculture industry.”
