Dear Valued Customers and Partners,
I would like to take this opportunity to provide an update in response to the Victorian State Government’s announcement yesterday afternoon of Victoria moving to Stage 4 Restrictions. The entire Sealite Community recognises the severity of the global COVID-19 pandemic and supports all measures to combat the spread of COVID-19.
Business Continuity – Australia Operations
Our business has reviewed and assessed the Victorian Premier’s press conference from yesterday afternoon, as well as the associated documents. As a critical supplier to the essential industries of Defence and Transportation, Sealite is declared to be an industry permitted to operate under a COVID safe plan. We are mindful of the need for our business to stay open to support the livelihoods of the people we employ, and the delivery of essential services that meet the safety needs of our clients. In line with the new Victorian Government requirements, we have reviewed our current COVID measures and they comply with all the current requirements.
In addition to our health and safety measures, we have plans in place securing our supply chain to ensure the continuous provision of parts. From the outset of this pandemic, Sealite has not lost a single day of production and we currently forecast no impacts to the processing and supply of customer orders and product supply.
Business Continuity – USA & UK Operations
Our USA and UK operations continue to operate at full capacity, having implemented measures to ensure their manufacturing facilities can continue to function safely in accordance with all local health and safety measures.
Thank you for your continued support throughout this period. On a personal note, our thoughts extend to the many Victorian businesses that will be forced to close this week, and the hundreds of thousands of employees being stood down.

On behalf of Karachi Port I am pleased to acknowledge your good service and provision of the new SL-75 solar marine lanterns installed by your firm in the harbour channel at Karachi Port. The new lanterns are very feasible and useful and equipped with the latest navigational technology.

As one of your new distributors (Belize and Honduras, Waller Marine Belize LTD), I would like to express my congratulations to you and your people in providing reliable, dependable and inexpensive products. Formerly we were distributors for a Canadian made product but these were found to be too expensive for the market and also offered only difficult and complicated programming. Our first order of lights from you (SL15’s) took only four days to arrive from Aussie Land, when I opened the box they were still flashing. I tested a SL60 (white) for four days (steady on) before it required a recharge…remarkable. I will be placing another order shortly. Keep up the good work.

We choose to sell Sealite … this is a long story, well we treat Sealite as our own and the relationship we have developed with Jeff and Chris and their attitude and commitment towards growing Sealite to this stage is remarkable. We feel at home when talking to them and the staff of Sealite and this in turn gives us more security and strength in selling products in India.

I just wanted to say thank you for the light and bracket Sealite supplied to Birkenhead Marina. As the other lights (old ones) need new batteries I will be replacing them with new lights from Sealite and the same brackets that you supplied with the light we received last week … Your product is excellent and the system of setting the light is good also. Thanks again for all your trouble.
