Chemring Marine, the world’s leading marine distress signals company, has secured a five-year contract to supply products to the Survitec Group.

The new agreement will see all existing and new companies that are part of the Survitec Group working exclusively with Chemring Marine and Chemring Australia. Survitec companies fit all their new liferafts and serviced liferafts with Pains Wessex and Comet SOLAS commercial marine distress signals.

Doug Baxter, CEO Survitec Group says, “Survitec is very pleased to extend its existing cooperation with Chemring Marine. The company has reliably supplied our group for many decades and this agreement further enhances our strategic partnership. We look forward to working together to develop new plans and to further grow our business globally.”

Pains Wessex products will be supplied to Survitec’s manufacturing plants, as well as its extensive network of distribution and liferaft servicing companies around the world.

Justine Heeley, managing director of Chemring Marine says, “This agreement is an important expansion of our already successful business relationship with Survitec, and will create a growth opportunity for Chemring, as it now encompasses a number of businesses recently acquired by Survitec Group.

It is a particularly important contract renewal since Chemring Marine and Survitec have been instrumental in saving lives at sea for many decades.

This agreement sees two of the world’s longest established marine safety companies working together to save lives at sea. Beaufort dates back to 1854 and RFD was founded in 1920. Both have become leaders in survival technology, and now, as part of Survitec Group, are at the forefront of marine and aerospace safety and survival equipment.

Available through over 200 distributors in more than 80 countries, Chemring Marine’s comprehensive range of products has been helping to save lives for more than 100 years.

Chemring Marine is at the forefront of campaigning for improved global marine safety regulations, including introducing standardised rules on replacing dated safety products.
