Unique Seaflex, a Unique Maritime Group company, completed the manufacturing of its 30,000th bag on the October 28, 2013. Seaflex is a manufacturer of heavy duty flexible structures. It designs, builds and maintains the internationally accepted, accredited and well proven range of air lift bags as well as a comprehensive range of water filled test weights.

It is one of the smallest bags in the selection of range of inflatable buoyancy that can be provided and this 50kg parachute-style air lift bag represents a significant milestone for U.K. buoyancy and ballast specialist Unique Seaflex.

Anticipated to be part of a requirement of air lift bags supplied on hire to a major offshore contractor for their North Sea operations, this bag carries the serial number 30,000 – which the 26-year history of the Isle of Wight based manufacturer calls a notable landmark.

Seaflex, was established as a small family owned business working from a modest facility by Mark Board back in 1987. At that time, bags of this size were the core business and the largest bag produced offered only 500kg of uplift.

In 2013, the largest bag produced at Seaflex's purpose-built Cowes facility comes in at 50t -1,000 times the capacity of this 50kg bag.
