Somerville, Victoria, Australia – December 2017 — Sealite (t/a Avlite Systems) is pleased to announce the company has acquired a majority interest in Laser Guidance Inc.

Located in Washington, USA, Laser Guidance is a leading designer and manufacturer of LED precision lighting systems for the aviation industry. The range includes Precision Approach Path Indicator (PAPI), Helipad Approach Path Indicator (HAPI), Medium Intensity Approach Lighting with Sequenced Alignment (MALSR), expeditionary airfield lighting systems and other class-leading products. The company is a leader in the supply of niche products into civilian and defence markets.

Part of the Sealite Group, Avlite Systems was launched in 2005 to design and manufacture solar powered airfield lighting systems, helipad lighting systems, and obstruction lighting. The acquisition of Laser Guidance will give Avlite clients access to the widest range of portable airfield lighting products on the market for expeditionary or sustained uses.

Dr David Shemwell, Founder of Laser Guidance commented ‘Laser Guidance is excited to have its products integrated into Avlite Systems product range and have the ability to work with Avlite to design and develop new technologies for the airfield lighting market’.

Sealite/Avlite Systems CEO Chris Procter commented ‘Laser Guidance is well respected in the marketplace and we’re proud to have their products form part of our portfolio, as well as investing in their business to accelerate product development. Customers are increasingly wanting a single manufacturer to design and deliver their solar-powered airfield lighting systems, and this acquisition allows us to offer them more value than traditional integrators of 3rd party product’

Laser Guidance will continue to operate its facility in Redmond, WA, and Avlite estimates full integration of the Laser Guidance product offering into the Avlite range by March 2018.

What Our Client's Say

“[Re: Sealite Wins Duke ™s Choice Award for Java Technology & the Environment “ Sealite GSM monitoring & control system], The team at Motorola were extremely impressed with Sealite’s innovative integration of the G24-Java wireless module in their GSM Monitoring & Alarm System.”

-Golan Haver

“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.”

-Capt Andy Suddes

“[Re: Installation of WindTalker for kite-surfing club], The WindTalker „ is a big success here in Cyprus, thanks to your after sales support the unit is now functioning perfectly.”

-Christophe Meletiou

“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.”

“[Re: Sealite Solar-Powered LED Area Lighting system], We chose the Sealite system for the Jacobs Well Queuing Pontoon due to our previous experience with Sealite ™s product, its durability and construction.”

-Peter Taylor

“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.”
