RightShip has announced the acquisition of Thynk Software’s maritime tech business.

Thynk’s Founder and CEO, Marlon Grech, and around 30 of his colleagues will join RightShip when the acquisition completes, which is expected to be 1 September 2022.

Grech will also become RightShip’s first Chief Technology Officer.

RightShip launched their innovative Platform 18 months ago after close collaboration with Thynk. The market and customers have widely accepted the platform, demonstrating a degree of dependability upon which RightShip said they aim to capitalise on.

RightShip CEO Steen Lund said: “I am delighted we can announce the acquisition of Thynk Software’s maritime tech business, and that Marlon and his team will join RightShip.

“This is a critical strategic development for RightShip as we gain our own in-house technology competence that will underpin our long-term growth objective of being an industry leading ESG focused digital maritime platform.”

Marlon Grech, Founder and CEO at Thynk added: “This is a great opportunity for us at Thynk to solidify and develop our long-term relationship with RightShip. We have worked together for several years now and know each other well, and so for me and my Malta based team, this is a natural progression.

“We are all looking forward to the opportunities that will come our way as being part of the RightShip team.”

In June RightShip announced a new collaboration with global innovation platform Plug and Play.
