NEW YORK, Nov. 11, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- GenNx360 Capital Partners (“GenNx360”), a New York-based private equity firm, is pleased to announce that its portfolio company, Subsea Global Solutions (“SGS”), a provider of underwater vessel maintenance, inspection and repair services to vessel owners and operators within diversified marine transportation and construction sectors, has acquired Underwater Contractors Pte. Ltd. (UWC), a prominent commercial diving firm based in Singapore, and Gray Diving Services Pty. Ltd. (GDS), a commercial diving firm based in Sydney, Australia, through separate transactions. With these two tandem acquisitions, SGS expands its global footprint in the Asia-Pacific region beyond Busan, South Korea, where it had a local office for the last 7 years and increases the number of its home ports worldwide to 13.

“This is a significant milestone in the history of SGS. We are absolutely delighted to expand our global footprint to Singapore, a strategic commercial shipping hub where most of our clients visit regularly, as well as to Sydney, a critical port for our cruise business. With well-known brands like UWC and GDS joining our organization, we will solidify our leadership in our market segment and will be able to truly support our clients from these key locations with our own personnel, boats, gear, and equipment. We look forward to joining our forces,” said Paul Peters, CEO of SGS.

“The acquisition of UWC and GDS is another example of GenNx360′s bolt-on strategy at work and are exciting additions to SGS following its addition of Muldoon Marine Services, Inc. last November,” said Matt Guenther, GenNx360 Managing Partner. “This is an extraordinary opportunity to bring together three major players in the industry with complimentary business models. The companies share a commitment to the highest possible quality standards and will each benefit from working together. We will continue looking for new opportunities to expand SGS’s geographic reach, both organically and through additional acquisitions,” he added.
