Marinetech – looking towards the future and back on our 30-year history
Having begun as a start-up in 1989 and been re-established as 'Marinetech' in 1993, our company is nowadays counted among the largest providers of high-quality, rust-proof stainless steel connecting elements in Europe.
Even though we've surpassed ourselves several times over in our 30-year company history, we've always remained true to our roots in Bremen's Nord district! More than 36,000 different items are launched here: to small and medium-sized shipyards and boat builders, to the different customers from many sectors within the wholesale and retail trade, and to industry and commercial enterprises worldwide.
At Marinetech, further development doesn't just take place in the form of growth; it's also a continuous process fostered by new and creative ideas and services. Discover your options at Marinetech – or simply ask us!
Marinetech's success story
From a simple container depot to a high-tech warehouse integrating modern technology. Clear structures and a quality-focused management system promote sustainable, creative growth.
1989 – Starting up with the mobile first approach
The first warehouses and offices were initially built in mobile containers
- 10,000 products in the range
- 4 employees
The concept was a successful one. Demand grew rapidly and soon capacities needed to be expanded in every respect. Construction of a functional warehouse and administrative building started at the Heidlerchenstrasse site in Bremen's Blumenthal district back in 1991. The aim was to enable the company to stand firmly on its own feet in the future.
1993 – Re-establishment
The name 'Marinetech' pointed in the right direction. The target group mainly comprised companies from the shipyard and yacht industry in northern Germany.
Marinetech Edelstahlhandel GmbH & Co. KG has continued to grow in these key sectors.
- 400 m² of logistics space and 120 m² of office space
- 15,000 products in the range
- 7 employees
2000 – Heading to new shores – move to Am Rönnebecker Hain
At the end of the 1990s, the warehouse and logistics capacities on Heidlerchenstrasse were no longer sufficient, and the company moved to much larger premises at Am Rönnebecker Hain 6.
- 1,000 m² of logistics space and 300 m² of office space
- 20,000 products in the range
- 16 employees
2008 – Both the product range and Marinetech's target group expands
The first few years of the new millennium were characterised by the expansion of the product range
- 1,600 m² of logistics space and 600 m² of office space
- 28,000 products in the range
- 50 employees
New target groups in the fields of interior design, plumbing and vehicle construction brought with them extended requirements and new inspiration into the company. Once again, the growing handling volumes exceeded all the storage and administrative capacities. The building was consistently expanded and staff numbers were tripled.
2016 to 2020 – Marinetech is one of Europe's largest providers of stainless steel connecting elements
– integrating state-of-the-art warehouse and logistics technology
Since 2016, our base has been our prestigious and spacious new building at Marschgehren 16 – on the traditional premises of the former Bremen wool combing works in Bremen's Blumenthal district.
- 6,200 m² of logistics space and 1,300 m² of office space
- 36,000 products in the range
- More than 90 employees
2021 - The new variety
