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.”
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.
