Data Hidrolik has an established track record in the pleasure boat and commercial marine industry. A pioneering company since 1945 in the design of deck machinery and steering systems, in 1979 Data Hidrolik began to expand to become a globally recognized brand, extending its product range to various marine platforms.

“It is a great opportunity for us to be able to offer Data Hidrolik products to our customers, who have long considered Saim Marine a reliable partner for deck machinery as well,” commented Marco Donà, managing director of SAIM. “Since its inception in 1993, SAIM Marine, our marine business unit, has also consolidated its experience in the supply of anchor winches and mooring systems. The understanding with Data Hidrolik was immediate and the agreement was concluded quickly by sharing a vision focused on product quality and customer service. Both founded 70 years ago, our companies have a long and established business tradition and have both been run by the same family for three generations now. This agreement stems from the common vision we have for the future.”
