About Us – Martek Marine

If you get excited about disruptive innovation, then you’re in the right place! Martek Marine exists to revolutionise ship safety, performance and crew welfare. We’ve been doing it since 1999 and we’ve supplied over 30,000 shipsets of equipment with more than $100million sales to date. The world’s major ship operators trust our products to keep their ships/crew safe and improve their performance. We can do the same for you!

Our story started nearly 20 years ago when our founders (Paul, Mike and Steve) quit their jobs after being told their ideas were no good. With just £6,000 initial investment mingled with lots of blood, sweat and tears (yes really!), the business is now truly global with ~60 staff serving >80 countries. We’ve got ISO 9001, Investors in People (Gold) and Institute of Customer Service accreditations and we’ve won two Queen’s Awards. Maybe those original ideas weren’t so bad after all?!

The key to our success is being OBSESSIVE about attracting and developing talented people – Martek’s a great place to work for high achievers and anyone wanting to be the best they can. Happy people GUARANTEE we deliver a LEGENDARY customer experience. The customer is KING – it’s not rocket science!

Being different and doing business with personality in a conservative marine industry drives us. We VALUE teamwork, ownership, improvement, enjoyment and delivering WOW! Here’s a short video clip so you feel more of what we’re about.

Martek Marine Company Overview

We know we can never be complacent and must keep improving – the 2009 recession taught us a lot and we came back even stronger. We’re determined to be the best we can to make a real and lasting difference to our industry.

In 2019, Martek Marine was acquired by the James Fisher Group of companies, integrating its service offering with an extensive range of marine services for high integrity industries worldwide. James Fisher and Sons plc is a leading provider of specialised services to the marine, oil and gas and other high assurance industries worldwide.

Here’s a look at the Martek Marine future:

We’re respected and admired by our peers and competitors. We create dominant products and services that are actively sought by shipping companies who achieve major operational gains using them. Our brand is admired, signifying disruptive innovation and quality that rivals companies like Apple. The best talent wants to join us. Our people give unsolicited feedback that they love what they’re doing – they walk tall and willingly work long, smart and hard. Our team and customers feel like we’ve contributed to their lives in a positive way.

Whether you’re a current or prospective customer, employee, supplier or partner – we hope you like what you see. Small daily improvements delivered consistently over time yield staggering results. Doing right never went out of style. Never stop learning.
