Sealite’s business expansion has continued with the commissioning of a third rotational moulding machine this month. Housed in a brand-new factory, the official opening marked the growth of the company’s global headquarters in Somerville Victoria.
The opening was an important milestone for the business. It creates dual rotational moulding production capacity for Sealite’s Australian operations. Their other manufacturing facilities are located in Tilton, USA where they service The Americas and Caribbean, and Lowestoft, UK where they service UK & European customers.
The new site was a significant milestone and capital investment. The new machine doubles capacity for manufactured products in Australia and may even result in new local employment opportunities in the future. This important addition will enable faster production times while maintaining their renowned quality and reputation for manufacturing excellence.
Sealite manufactures a large range of navigational aids, ocean buoys and channel markers from their company-owned sites. The choice to only use UV stabilised virgin polyethylene material for longevity and durability in IALA compliant colours is testament to Sealite’s commitment to quality.
The process to manufacture marine buoys is technical and achieving the highest integrity in product supply is why Sealite is so committed to manufacturing inhouse in ISO:2015 accredited facilities. Sealite also supply and manufacture navigational lighting, moorings and other turnkey solutions that are delivered to over 100 countries, world-wide.
Chris Procter, CEO added: “In line with our strategic 2020-year plan, the investment and commissioning of the new rotational moulding machine supports our plan to continue delivering our full range of rotational moulded products and solutions to our customers. Sealite will continue to build towards the vision of being the global leader of technically advanced and connected navigational aids through our people, process and commitment to quality.”
