Aqualuma opens new plant in Australia

Earlier this month, Aqualuma opened a manufacturing facility in Helensvale, Australia, to meet growing demand for the company’s LED lighting.

The official opening of the 16,000-square-foot building, which also will serve as Aqualuma’s corporate headquarters, was attended by more than 100 of the company’s dealers, distributors, customers and suppliers from around the world.

“We are looking forward to tremendous growth in 2015, with the recent release of our Gen 4 underwater lights selling out in a matter of weeks,” Aqualuma director Carl Amor said in a statement. “We also have preorders for our new commercial High Bay lights that [have] all of January’s production pre-sold.”

The Aqualuma Gen 4 18 Series Thru-Hull LEDs were introduced at the Oct. 30-Nov. 3 Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show.
