All of Teleflex Marine's sales representatives and customer service contacts remain the same after the sale of the company to H.I.G. Capital, which was announced earlier this week.

"We are excited to team up with H.I.G. to grow our business and build on our market-leading positions. As an independent entity we will maintain our commitment to delivering the highest-quality products and services to our customers," Teleflex Marine CEO Yvan Cote said in a statement.

The new company will continue to operate as Teleflex Marine and Sierra. Plants and facilities in Limerick, Pa., Litchfield, Ill., and Vancouver, British Columbia, as well as overseas operations in Australia, Singapore and New Zealand, are up and running.

"As we look forward to this next phase of our growth, I want to thank our many customers who have been an important part of our success," Cote added. "We are looking forward to serving them for many years to come."

H.I.G. Capital, a leading global private investment firm, this week announced the acquisition of Teleflex Marine by one if its affiliates. Teleflex Marine is a leading provider of OEM and aftermarket steering and control products and accessories for the global recreational marine and related markets.
