WaterMota, the UK-based engine, generator and gearbox specialist, has been acquired by the B&N Group in the Netherlands for an undisclosed sum

The B&N Group consists of Brinkmann & Niemeijer Motoren BV, De Maas BV, Sound Proof Systems BV and B&N Foreign Activities BV.

The company specialises in diesel engines, power plants, pump sets, power packs and sound absorbing cases, supplying to the industrial market as well as the shipping and leisure boat market.
