Keeping the manufacturing process in-house achieves better value for customers, superior quality standards and faster delivery than many of our competitors
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.
We operate an injection moulding facility to produce high-quality polymer components onsite, including sophisticated optics for the marine industry.
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.
The in-house surface mount assembly line is an automated system which is used for high speed and precision placement of electronic components onto printed circuit boards (PCB). This allows us to control every aspect of the construction and testing of the purpose built PCBs.
Robotic automation is used extensively throughout the manufacturing process, including assembly, programming and testing.
Our ongoing Quality Management System emphasizes our commitment to providing the highest quality goods and services to our customers. We have undertaken independent certification by SAI Global, Australia as complying with the strict requirements of ISO9001:2015 as follows: “The registration covers the Quality Management System for the design, development and manufacture of LED Navigation Lanterns and aids to Navigation.”
