OceanLED said its U.K.-based manufacturing facility will be back to full capacity production today, 10 days after the company announced a restructuring and it introduced several new members of its management team.

“We’ve worked tirelessly for the past two weeks and are pleased to announce that we have successfully re-engaged our supply chain,” OceanLED CEO Derek Duffill said in a statement.

“Our entire production team will be working overtime, beginning Wednesday, in order to ship all outstanding orders to our worldwide network of resellers. With the 2014 boating season now upon us, the first priority for the restructured team is getting product in the hands of our customers and building stock to support the anticipated demand.”

Duffill joined OceanLED in January. The underwater lighting company said he has technical knowledge from a number of prominent roles in engineering and management and has experience in team building and increasing profitability.

“With the introduction of new manufacturing techniques and an increase in production capacity, full-scale product shipments will recommence from this week; delivery lead times will return to normal over the next few weeks, with further improvements ongoing,” said Craig Allen, the company’s new operations director.

Allen’s previous roles include senior management positions in the automotive and energy sectors.

The company said Kevin Joszko, its new production manager, has more than 20 years of experience in manufacturing, production and logistics.
