Perth, Western Australia: Global marine safety equipment provider Mobilarm Ltd is joining forces with Europe’s largest Personal Locator Beacon (PLB) manufacturer and pioneer, Marine Rescue Technologies Ltd, the company behind the leading marine PLB brand, Sea Marshall®. The result of the acquisition will be the formation of the world’s largest technology company dedicated to marine safety and man overboard technology, and signifies the coming of a new era in the acceptance and application of PLBs within all maritime applications. . As the name behind the first affordable PLB for civilian use, Sea Marshall® has continued to innovate ever since. The idea was seeded following founder David Marshall’s own experience of a man overboard (MOB) situation, the sinking of the ‘Gaul’ trawler in 1974, and a request by the UK Ministry of Defence to develop a PLB for the Joint Services entry to the Whitbread Round the World Race in 1975. Subsequently, David and the Sea Marshall® name have been behind a number of innovations in maritime personal safety, including pioneering life-saving PLB technology for fishermen, offshore workers, divers and workboat crew. The current flagship Sea Marshall® products include the AU9 PLB series and the SARfinder® Alert and Locate Unit. Several new Sea Marshall® products are also scheduled for 2011.. In addition to offering Marine Safety Products, LHR Marine’s reputation for selling Mooring Equipment is well known internationally and they also represent top quality manufacturers of: Working at Height Equipment, Anti-Slip Solutions, Lifting & Handling Equipment, Personal Protective Equipment (PPE), Industrial Supplies and Workwear. LHR Marine’s recent successes include global agreements with major subsea shipping companies and international mooring companies which have been established from their service provision for over the last ten years from Aberdeen, Scotland and Perth, Australia.
