Newfoundland Marine Safety Systems Opens as Survitec Newfoundland
Survitec Group Invests in St. John’s Growing Offshore Oil & Gas Community

Survitec Group Limited - a global leader in critical safety and survival solutions - has announced the acquisition of Newfoundland Marine Safety Systems in Mount Pearl, Newfoundland, Canada.
Simon Withey, Survitec Group Chief Executive Officer, commented on the new business: "Survitec Group has carefully chosen a strong partner in the local market as a strategic location to ensure we offer the highest quality service and a complete range of on board survival equipment to the regional Oil & Gas industry."

The Survitec Group Newfoundland service station in Mount Pearl (located just outside of St. John’s) will provide inspection, servicing and sales of lifesaving appliances including SurvitecZodiac and DBC liferafts, SOLAS rescue boats, McMurdo EPIRBs, and Imperial Immersion suits. It will also serve as the primary site location for the Suncor Helicopter Passenger Transit Suit System (HPTSS) that was recently awarded to Survitec Group Vancouver. The site will manage the distribution and maintenance of the HPTSS programme for the Newfoundland region and was one of the key drivers to making this acquisition.

These acquisitions have expanded the global footprint of Survitec Group’s services and product distribution centers, while increasing the volume and variety of products and services available to Survitec customers.

The Newfoundland facility will form part of Survitec’s North American operations, with further locations in Sharon Center, Ohio; Delta, British Columbia; Houston, Texas; Jacksonville, Florida; and Medley, Florida. The new acquisition is part of Survitec North America’s strategy to maintain and grow strong partnerships with service stations and distributors in order to deliver the best value, highest quality safety and survival solutions to end user customers.
