Ocean Signal expands facilities

One of the United Kingdom’s fastest-growing communication and safety-at-sea specialists, Ocean Signal, expanded its facility at its Margate, England, headquarters.

The manufacturer said the extension of the production space and research and development facilities is to meet increased global demand for the company’s established product range and to prepare for the imminent production and distribution of further products.

The addition of the new space increases the production area by 40 percent.

“The expansion of our facilities is necessary to meet our production demands, packaging requirements and, crucially, to improve our research and development capabilities, which are such important aspects of the ethos of Ocean Signal,” Ocean signal managing director Alan Wrigley said in a statement. “It is an exciting phase for the company, with new products in the pipeline following a few years of design and development.”

Ocean Signal announced several new distributors in recent months, including All Sat Communications in Australia; True Heading in the Netherlands; and Radiomar in Brazil, with several further international collaborations set to be finalized later this year.

Ocean Signal is exhibiting its rescueME PLB1 and SafeSea range of GMDSS products at the commercial marine exhibition show Seawork June 10-12 in Southampton, England.
