Seatronics Inc., an Acteon company, is moving to a new, purpose-built facility in Houston to expand its rental, sales and service work for customers throughout North and Central America.

The new plant, at 1319 West Sam Houston Parkway North, Suite 150, contains service facilities for cable moulding, connector assembly production and injection polyurethane molding; along with a state-of-the-art calibration laboratory, an electrical and electronic repair centre and capabilities for gyro calibrations, inertial navigation and Doppler velocity log special services. It will also have an acoustic test tank and a current meter test tank. The facility has 15,000 square feet of floor space, which provides scope for expansion in all departments.

Mark Teles, Seatronics vice president for the U.S., said, “This move is about expanding services and capabilities and establishing a base for increased rental, sales and engineering activities across the Americas. More storage and state-of-the art calibration laboratories, testing bays and cable molding facilities will mean quicker and more efficient operations, which will benefit existing clients and provide an opportunity for us to broaden our client base. We will be better positioned to take on additional agencies, develop joint ventures and partnerships and promote and support new technologies in new markets.”

David Currie, managing director, Seatronics, said, “Seatronics Inc. has seen exponential business growth across the region and is building on that success. We already have the largest rental fleet of subsea electronics and, I believe, deliver the most professional service of any rental company in the Americas. We offer 24/7 technical support and training on electronic products. This new facility sends a clear message: Seatronics Inc. is growing fast and is ready to move into a larger business arena.”

A grand opening will be held for the new office on Thursday, Feb. 27, 2014. Seatronics will be presented with a DNV plaque to mark the company’s new ISO certification.
