Bruinhof Past & Present
Over 50 years Marine Service experience
Over 50 years
Since 1956 Bruinhof Marine has supplied, commissioned and serviced reliable Lohmann + Stolterfoht marine mechanical propulsion systems and other drive components for drive (shaft) generators, dredge pumps, jet pumps and cutter drives for the BeNeLux market. Due to their policy of returning to core business, in 1998 the Lohmann + Stolterfoht product range of marine gear units, couplings/clutches and slide/thrust bearings was sold into pieces to several furtheron mentioned companies.
A. Friedrich Flender AG took over the gearbox portfolio and Bruinhof Marine formed part of that transaction, to be their lifecycle support partner. The Lohmann + Stolterfoht NAVILUS range was hereafter re-branded to Flender NAVILUS. The DENTILUS geared couplings to Malmedie Solingen and the AXILUS and RADILUS shaftline bearings went to Renk Hannover. Despite all changes, due to the extensive knowledge on product lifecycle, the new portfolio owners reinstated Bruinhof Marine as their product and service representative. As a result of the Siemens AG takeover of Flender in 2005, Bruinhof Marine has been integrated into Siemens Netherlands with effect from February 2009.
