Specializing in nav/comm electronics, dynamic positioning systems (DP), and automation equipment, DMS serves high-seas, oil and gas, coastal, commercial fishing and naval customers. DMS' staff have more than 100 years collective maritime and naval experience.

"Expanding our global network to include South Africa has been a long-term goal for Mackay Marine" said Jeff Schlacks, President of Mackay. "Waldo Fourie and Todd Gaine - who will remain in charge - have built a stellar team serving nav/com and dynamic positioning customers. Combining DMS with Mackay's 43 global locations, abundant inventory, extensive training, and breadth of comm/nav partners, will elevate both organizations to better serve current and future customers."
