Product design is a core competency, and complete ownership of the product development cycle allows us to design and produce lighting equipment with higher standards of control and faster development times than many of our competitors.

Manufacturing Capabilities

Injection Moulding

We operate an injection moulding facility to produce high-quality polymer components onsite, including sophisticated optics for the marine industry.

Manufacturing Capabilities

Toolmaking for injection moulded components

Through a strategic acquisition in 2010, we now design and manufacture the high-precision moulds for all the injection moulded parts we make. This resource decreases our time to market, and provides our customers with a higher level of quality and service.
