Trevor Tasker, President and CEO of EMCS Industries Ltd bought the company from the Ramsay family in 2015 and has moved full steam ahead to bring this successful business to new heights and recognition in the marine industry.

Trevor was impassioned for the company and for providing turnkey antifouling solutions to the marine industry. He acquired Hull Tender International Inc. in August 2016. This allowed EMCS to grow even further into the commercial, passenger vessels, and offshore platform markets.

Hull Tender International Inc. was built on an idea its founder, Derek Knox, had in the 1970s to use a low-frequency pulse emitted into the water to discourage barnacles and mussels from attaching to boats’ undersides. Derek’s design was innovative and environmentally-friendly. The small company’s success spread by word of mouth. The Hydrosonic Hull Tender system (later renamed the NOXX HYD™ system, as a tribute to its founder) impressed Tasker, and a few short months after their first contact, Knox and Tasker made a deal. 

Hydrosonic Hull Tender became part of EMCS Industries Ltd.; two outstanding companies in the anticorrosion and antifouling industry coming together under the name, MARELCO™ by EMCS Industries Ltd.

At EMCS Industries, we are passionate about delivering incredible customer service and supporting our customers with time-tested and sustainable antifouling solutions that work for outcomes our customers seek. As innovators in antifouling and corrosion, we continue to pioneer cleantech solutions that reduce costs, improve performance, and protect the marine environment. 



When I purchased EMCS Industries Ltd in 2015, it wasn’t clear what our corporate values were or what aligned with my vision for the company. However, what I know was that having clear company values was paramount to our future success. 

With a few years under my belt, I have a clear idea of who we are as a company. I can define our values, culture, and objectives that support my vision and shape the company’s future.

My guidance is from Steve Hansen, the famous All Black Rugby Coach. Steve was once asked how he motivated his players. His response was, “My goal as a coach is not to motivate players, but rather to create an environment where motivated players can succeed.” 

For me, that sums it up! The core of defining an environment where motivated team members can succeed starts with a foundation of well-defined values. From there, we build our team that provides excellent customer service and is always looking to innovate and improve without ever compromising on our values and culture of trust. Our values drive every decision we make and define our organization; they guide my team members and me to achieve the same goals.

The result for our customer is a partnership relationship! 

We focus on an outcome rather than a product. Anyone can provide a product as a supplier; however, our culture ensures that it leads to a successful OUTCOME!  We are with you every step of the way as a partner. 

We treat our partners the way we expect to be treated; our values will align in a partnership, and we will naturally be treated the same way in return.

– Trevor Tasker (President and CEO)
