Mutual Respect and Interaction
Merima Ltd. was founded in1987 by two individual owners, Mauri Mäkiranta and Timo Nisonen. Their business idea was to do what they knew best: supplying interior solutions for all kinds of ships.
The growth-oriented company quickly set its target at becoming the business leader in five years. The target turnover, EUR 1.7 million (FIM 10 million at the time), was surpassed during the third year of operation.
Merima moved into its current premises in Helsinki. This was another important step for the company that also supported the growth.
The company supplied approximately 4,500 sq. m. of public space to each of ships in the Voyager series between 1997–2003, including theatres, restaurants and club areas.
Merima has intensified its’ efforts in the conversion of existing cruiser ships. Our U.S. office Merima LLC was established to support this part of operations.
