The propulsion and driveline experts MIT come to Galway. With over 40 years of marine driveline experience, MIT is, in 2019 committed to better serving the Irish marine market and its customers by exhibiting at Skipper Expo Galway, 8-9 March 2019.

Identified as a central hub to the UK and Irish fishing industry, MIT now has a dedicated presence in both Northern and Southern Ireland. Over the past year, the business has been intensively studying the needs of this geographic region, and offers not only servicing, breakdown and spare parts but is also able to act as the expert consultative service to all aspects of the supply chain.

MIT has the expertise to work with not only end users but also with both boat builders, naval architects and engine OEM’s to advise on an extensive range of best fit marine components; ranging from gears and controls to anti-vibration engine and exhaust mounting.

Offering both new and reconditioned marine gears, clutches, PTO’s and hydraulic pump drives, MIT also understands the need to keep vessels at sea, and the impact downtime has on profitability.

Keeping all configurations of driveline operational

With over 40 years of industry experience, MIT offers full life vessel support, ensuring that your business downtime is kept to a minimum. MIT pride themselves on their customer-driven philosophy. The customers’ business truly is at the heart of everything they do. They have a highly skilled and dedicated technical engineering team offering everything from bespoke supply and design through to installation, servicing and repair.

An essential aspect of value delivered by MIT is their team of qualified service engineers, offering extensive service, preventative maintenance and overhaul capabilities on most models of marine drivelines, along with being the UK/Ireland distributors for Twin Disc, and official service partners of ZF Marine, Reintjes and Servogear.

Based out of their Kent and Yorkshire service centres, their mobile engineers are equipped with tooling and spare parts to visit your vessel no matter the location. All repairs, maintenance and overhaul work, are carried out using genuine OEM parts to ensure quality and extend the life-cycle of your application.

More than just marine transmissions, MIT support critical components both below and above the waterline, with offerings from some of the industry’s leading brands such as Twin Disc, Transfluid, Rubber Design and Quincy Compressors.

Their comprehensive product portfolio offers not only standard marine gears but hybrid/electric driveline technology, anti-vibration mounting technology, exhaust suspension systems, power take-offs and air compressors. The below deck component offering also extends to propeller solutions, surface drives, trim tabs, shaftline systems and bow and stern thrusters.

Above deck technology also features strongly in the MIT portfolio, designed to aid a users’ dynamic positioning – retaining their vessels station in challenging at sea environments. Joystick controls, hydraulic and electric steering systems and electronic controls allow excellent vessel movability while seamlessly integrating into existing driveline arrangements.

MIT is delighted to be exhibiting at Skipper Expo Galway where on stand 80 they will be discussing how MIT is your complete driveline solution provider and introducing the dedicated Irish Sales Engineer.
