Magic Marine is one of the premier brands in technical sailing wear

North Technology Group (NTG) has purchased MBrands International BV, owners of the Magic Marine technical sailing apparel brand and Mystic kiteboarding accessories, creating a new division of NTG called North Actionsports Group.

“The businesses have a great synergistic fit with our existing North Sails apparel range and our North Kiteboarding business,” Richard Lott, NTG chief operating officer, said in a company news release. “It also brings a new group of young, skillful and enthusiastic managers into the group and this fits really well with the existing plans to keep developing the skill set of our management team for the future throughout the world.”

Located in The Netherlands, MBrands International was successfully developed by the Blom family over the last 15 years and Magic Marine is one of the premier brands in technical sailing wear.

“After many years of running a family business as well as several other clothing, water and snow sport-oriented businesses, the decision to join NTG was obvious and the benefits are self-evident,” said Max Blom Sr, CEO of MBrands International.

NTG is also the parent company of North Sails, Southern Spars, Future Fibres, Edgewater Boats, North Thin Ply Technology (NTPT), and North Sails Collection.
