This month marks the 10-year anniversary of Sealite’s acquisition of Rhur Tooling. By purchasing Rhur Tooling, Sealite was able to insource precision toolmaking and establish a new factory on 14 Industrial Drive, Somerville, Australia.
Precision toolmaking is the backbone of any successful manufacturing business. Since we have direct access to our very own tool room, we can guarantee a timely response to customers’ needs and on-time delivery. We know time is an important factor, so together with our toolmaking masters, we make sure products are built as fast as possible.
For our business, insourcing precision toolmaking ensures we produce high quality parts. The Sealite tool room design and build all of our injection moulding dies, jigs and fixtures. They also machine custom parts in our modern CNC machines. Our products can be modified or changed to meet a custom demand within a specified lead time.
“The exceptional skills of our toolroom team are invaluable to Sealite in accelerating our new product development,” said Chris Proctor, CEO of Sealite.
“Having these resources onsite is unique, and over the past decade they have certainly been the backbone of our business. At this anniversary, I want to thank them for their ongoing contribution and efforts.”
Sustainable growth and innovation are at the heart of the company. This has made Sealite the technology leader in the design and manufacture of marine aids to navigation (AtoN) and solar-powered aviation lighting equipment.
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 with Dana 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.
