Survitec Establishes a Sunshine Coast Branch

Leading marine safety company Survitec, has established a sales and service presence on Queensland's Sunshine Coast at Warana.

This lies in the heart of an intensive boating region where recreational and commercial boating activity is concentrated. The Warana branch is perfectly positioned to support RFD and Survitec customers from the northern suburbs of Brisbane, all the way through to Hervey Bay.

"The Survitec Branch is a service focussed operation," said Survitec Qld Manager, Neal Skinner.

"We are set up to service all Survitec and RFD life rafts and inflatable boats of any brand. Our service facility is staffed by Survitec factory trained technicians to ensure that our quality control is the very best in the industry."

In addition to the core service function at Warana, the branch office carries a basic inventory of Survitec and RFD marine products plus EPIRBS and flare sets. All other products marketed by Survitec can be supplied ex Brisbane on a next day basis.

The Survitec facility remains as the headquarters for all operations in Queensland. The Slacks Creek location offers sales, service, parts and warehousing functions.

The presence of Survitec in the Sunshine Coast market has come about through the acquisition of the established business, Sunshine Life Rafts.

"Sunshine Life Rafts has an excellent reputation in this region. When Steve Watson indicated to us that he was ready to move on, we seized on the opportunity to continue supporting the Sunshine Coast market through direct representation."

"The branch remains at the same location at 37 Technology Drive, Warana and we continue to supply specialist service support under the Survitec banner."

Survitec Group in Australia (RFD Australia Pty Ltd) is primarily involved in the supply, service and project management of marine, fire, life support and gas control equipment to Government Departments and major corporations in the region. In the marine segment Survitec Group services recreational boating as well as the defence, shipping and aviation industries. Major brands distributed include: RFD, Toyo, DSB, Lifeguard, Beaufort, Plastimo, Kannad Marine, Comet, Hammar and Compact.
