SeaStar Solutions acquires Mallory Marine

Marine steering and control manufacturer and distributor SeaStar Solutions, formerly known as Teleflex Marine, acquired Mallory Marine from Prestolite Performance, a manufacturer and distributer of auto-racing products.

Mallory Marine markets a full line of inboard and outboard engine replacement parts, oil and lubricants. The deal does not affect Mallory Ignition, the sister company to Mallory Marine, which will remain a core brand of Prestolite Performance.

“This acquisition adds to the extensive product line and distribution services we provide through our Sierra division,” SeaStar Solutions president and CEO Yvan Cote said in a statement. “It further strengthens our capacity to meet the needs of marine dealers for superior quality parts, extensive product availability and fast delivery.”

SeaStar Solutions continues to pursue an aggressive growth strategy focusing on new-product developments and acquisitions. Its Optimus 360 Joystick Docking System for outboard and sterndrive boats and its Xtreme Steering System won NMMA Innovation Awards and have provided new OEM and aftermarket sales opportunities. The company has also made key acquisitions in the marine market, including INCA Molded Products and Detwiler Jack Plates.

“We continue to grow by providing our customers with an expanding array of world-class products and services,” Cote added. “Whether it’s exciting new products like Optimus and Xtreme or the acquisition of a company like Mallory Marine, our objective is the same — to provide our customers with innovative solutions, as well as the highest levels of quality, reliability and service that propel us all forward.”
