Survival Craft Inspectorate (SCI), a global provider of emergency marine evacuation systems, is to launch a new division at the Cruise Shipping Miami 2013 exhibition (March 11-14, 2013).

The new division of SCI will supply, install and maintain emergency liferafts for the commercial cruise shipping and energy markets. SCI will initially open three offices in the United Kingdom with the first being at the company’s Findon operation. Initially 10 jobs will be created across the three new operations.

Survival Craft Inspectorate has more than 20 years' experience in the manufacture, inspection, testing and servicing of lifeboats, fast rescue craft, release mechanisms, winches and davits to international standards for the global merchant shipping, cruise and oil and gas sectors. Its acquisition of the RocLoc trade and assets, from St John’s-based Mad Rock Marine Solutions Inc, gave the company enhanced access to the cruise ship safety market. SCI will be highlighting its products and service offerings at Booth 2328 at Cruise Shipping Miami. The company has 10 operations worldwide – including two in the United States – and plans to achieve turnover of £25m ($39million) by the end of the year.

The patent-protected RocLoc hook system, combined with Survival Craft Inspectorate’s Safelaunch lifeboat release system strengthens the company’s place in the market ahead of new safety regulations coming into force in 2014.
