Increased sales in Applied Acoustics' underwater positioning equipment and seismic survey systems has necessitated their move into larger premises. The new facility, more than twice the size of the previous building, houses spacious production areas, test facilities and administrative offices as well as a new suite to be used as a Training Centre. In addition, the company has invested in a spectacular new 6000m pressure test tank which will allow it to develop products for full ocean depth operations.
"The successful launch of several new products in recent years has meant our production facilities have been rather congested," explained Managing Director Adam Darling, "but now with much more space we can offer a greater product range, shorter lead times and more products from stock."
The staff have worked hard and a healthy order book reflects their efforts, so I'm delighted we can step up to provide an even better service in the months ahead." he added.
Applied Acoustics was established in 1989 and now manufactures a wide range of positioning beacons, USBL subsea tracking systems and seismic sub-bottom profiling equipment used by commercial companies and academic institutions worldwide. Their latest new product, the rack-mounted, spread spectrum Easytrak Nexus was launched recently at Ocean Business in Southampton.
The new facility was officially opened by Norfolk MP Tony Wright on April 23rd with local VIPs, customers and suppliers invited to toast the company's success.
