Seamaster Marine Products reports sales increase


Marinized LED light manufacturer Seamaster Marine Products reported a 30 percent sales increase during the last six months.

The company noted benefits from capital investment and executive support from CXO Collective International LLC and continued product development as the driving forces behind the growth.

"CXO brought in talent and capital, and we now have the depth of management and infrastructure for growth. Our new array of 2-wire, 3-color LED lights greatly simplify installation. Our new RGB system, controlled by a user's mobile device, will turn heads," Seamaster president John Harwood said in a statement.

Through CXO, Seamaster now has new business development manager Gary Stern, operations manager Burk Moreland and new East Coast business development head John Lively to reinforce the company's objectives.

"We have limitless opportunities to expand our LED lighting in the marine market, explore complementary products and begin to target other industries. It will be an exciting year for our company," Harwood said.

In related news, Stuart, Fla.-based Seamaster signed with the public relations firm Martin Flory Group. The veteran PR specialist will support Seamaster's industry communication and product promotion within North America.
