Rocna Acquired by Canada Metal Pacific

After a recent recall surrounding the quality of the metals used in their anchors, Rocna Anchors has been sold. Canada Metal Pacific of Vancouver has acquired the New Zealand-based company. John Mitchell, president of Canada Metal Pacific, made the announcement. The Rocna manufacturing license has been re-assigned to Canada Metal Pacific. Key Rocna personnel are being retained to assist with the transition and support ongoing activities.

“We have been searching for a line of anchors and anchoring products to complement our CMP anchor chain,” stated Mitchell. “We are very excited to bring Rocna Anchors into the fold. Their superior performance fits well with our focus on innovation and quality products.”

Canada Metal Pacific is a world-leading producer of CMP chain, Martyr marine anodes, Octopus marine autopilot drive systems and Intellisteer remote steering systems.

“I am impressed with the manufacturing, engineering and quality control capabilities of Canada Metal Pacific,” said Peter Smith, designer of the Rocna anchor. “I look forward to working with them to continue Rocna’s growth as the highest quality, best-performing anchor available.”
