Vónin, a premier developer and manufacturer of fishing gear and aquaculture equipment, has announced the takeover of Mørenot Scotland, which has been renamed Vónin UK Ltd. It will trade as Vónin Scotland.
According to the press release, "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."
Mørenot Scotland operates in Scalloway in Shetland and Scalpay on the Hebrides. The company assures that the team of 28 employees, "perfectly reflects Vónin’s ethos of delivering exceptional quality and service". 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."
Hjalmar Petersen, CEO of Vónin, confirmed: "This takeover marks a landmark moment in our history. 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."
Also, David Goodlad, Managing Director at Vónin Scotland, said: "Becoming part of Vónin opens fantastic new opportunities. 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.
What started in 1969 as a venture to produce fishing equipment for the local fleet, set up by a group of fishermen, Vónin has grown into one of the Islands’ major exporters as its focus expanded from working solely with the home fleet.
The company has developed from relatively modest local roots, into a highly specialized and genuinely international operation with a wealth of expertise and experience behind it.
