Tideland Signal Corporation, now part of Xylem, has announced that it has entered into a definitive agreement to acquire certain assets of Julius Signal, extending the company’s extensive portfolio of marine and offshore aids to navigation offerings. Julius Signal originated from Pintsch Aben’s marine and aviation signalisation business, a company with a long heritage of expertise and innovation in navigation aids leading all the way back to the original founder Julius Pintsch over 150 years ago.
Julius Signal adds a diverse product portfolio, expanded market access and a great team to Tideland Signal. In addition to a strong market footprint in Julius Signal’s home market of Germany, the company has long enjoyed an extensive international presence. Julius Signal’s product portfolio includes a wide array of marine aids to navigation products, highly complementary to Tideland Signal’s offering, and extends its capabilities with obstruction signals, offshore wind solutions and unique in-land waterway navigation aids including lock signaling and navigation signage.
“We are pleased to have Julius Signal join the global Tideland Signal team. Following on the recent acquisition of IMT, and now with the global backing of Xylem, we are in a position to serve our ocean and coastal customers with a broader array of Aids to Navigation solutions,” says Matt Scheuing, Tideland’s Managing Director.
