The sale is the final step in parent company North Group’s plans to drive operational efficiency and strengthen Sunderland Marine’s global operations following its acquisition in 2014.

According to Sunderland Marine chief executive officer Tom Rutter, ‘reorganising our branches in this way allows us to maintain important distribution networks, further simplify our business and maintain longstanding commercial relationships which extend over 25 years’.

Former Seattle office claims manager Mark McDermott will remain with Sunderland Marine to continue the high service levels currently provided to the North American market.

North’s joint managing director Alan Wilson noted, “We are confident that this reorganisation and restructuring of Sunderland Marine in North America will further streamline the business, reduce costs and improve overall efficiency.”
