Ocean Signal, the U.K.-based manufacturer of survival and safety equipment, moved into a new, 19,200-square-foot facility, tripling its space to bolster growth.
The company was founded in 2008, supplying EPIRBs, PLBs, SARTs, and AIS and MOB units for recreational, commercial and professional racing use. Since then, it has produced and shipped more than 100,000 PLBs, 70,000 EPIRBs and 100,000 MOB devices.
“The latest development ensures Ocean Signal can stay at the forefront of engineering and manufacturing life-saving solutions for customers across the world,” managing director James Hewitt said in a statement.
ACR Electronics acquired Ocean Signal in 2015. In recent years, the company added electronic flares, VHF radios and more to its portfolio.
“It is really exciting that Ocean Signal is now embarking on the next stage of its success story … within the ACR family to future-proof our business strategy for the years ahead,” ACR president John Nguyen said. “I am confident that the new investment will be a catalyst for continued growth.”
