Ocean Signal triples size of factory facilities

Ocean Signal has tripled the size of its business footprint in Margate. It says this is to support accelerated growth plans, meet increasing production demands and strengthen the company’s capabilities to launch the next generation of communication and survival products to the market.

The safety at sea company has completed its move into a new 19,200 square foot factory.

In addition to investing in the expansion in factory space, Ocean Signal has almost doubled the number of company personnel in the past four years. It says a strong research and development team has been established to build on the department’s reputation for creating user-friendly and technologically advanced devices.

“It is testament to the strength of the company and its people, the proven reliability and effectiveness of our products, and the high profitability within the ACR family, that Ocean Signal continues to thrive, despite the harsh new environment and the challenges of the last 12 months,” says MD James Hewitt. “With this threefold increase in factory size, we are well positioned to continue building on our growth strategy and keep up with demand from our customers, while also developing ground-breaking safety products.

“The global integration of the ACR, Ocean Signal and UML businesses and the combination of our expertise and quality brands continues to deliver results, both in terms of sustained business success and, most importantly, for the benefit of our customers and to ultimately save more lives with our products. The latest development ensures Ocean Signal can stay at the forefront of engineering and manufacturing life-saving solutions for customers across the world.”

Ocean Signal has reported impressive growth in the past 10 years, with a product range now including EPIRBs, PLBs, SARTs, AIS and MOB devices, electronic flares, VHF, VDR equipment and more. The company now operates alongside sister brand United Moulders Ltd (UML) at the UK base.
