2019 has been another significant year for the Sealite group.
Of particular note was the successful release of Star2M® , our third business unit. This new entity has been established as a cloud-based telecommunications provider for the monitoring and asset management of our marine and aviation products. Star2M has set a new benchmark in our industry for satellite-enabled monitoring, control and asset management. The platform is now being successfully used by major port authorities and aquaculture clients.
Our strong partnership and the backing of the Iridium network has allowed us to provide uninterrupted service and reliability for our customers. Early in the New Year the next version of our platform will be released, offering expanded features and even more value for customers.
This past year we have been immensely proud of our commitment to industry development. Sealite has hosted our Aids to Navigation symposiums in Colombia, Vietnam, Melbourne and Auckland. These events have been extremely well attended and provide our clients the opportunity to hear from industry experts, network with peers, and help to build their AtoN knowledge.
Looking forward to 2020, our strategic focus is to enable the connection of all our devices to our cloud platform to support low-cost and reliable global asset management and control. The pace of innovation in sensor and IoT technologies will continue to support and accelerate product development. The overall goal is to improve operational efficiency and safety for AtoN clients.
In addition, we will be expanding selected manufacturing facilities to increase capacity, shorten lead times, and bring the production of products closer to our customers. Central to this initiative is the commissioning of our third rotational moulding location in the middle of 2020.
Thank you for your continued support during the past year and we look forward to 2020. We will continue to build towards our vision of being the global leader of technically advanced and connected devices through our people, process and commitment to quality.
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.
