Survitec Survival Products Inc to launch Kannad Marine product range at Miami Boat Show

survitecSurvitec Survival Products Inc, part of the Survitec Group Limited, world-wide manufacturers and distributors for the marine, defence and aerospace survival technology industries, will launch the full Kannad Marine product range at Miami International Boat Show (Booth No. 1642), which takes place in Florida, USA from 17-21st February. As the new distributor for the Americas, SSPI will promote and distribute Kannad Marine products to the leisure boating and commercial maritime markets.


As a world-leading brand of maritime distress beacons, Kannad Marine offers a full product range of emergency location devices for vessel and personal use.

Amongst Kannad Marine’s portfolio of products is the new SafeLink SOLO Personal Locator Beacon, which was launched at Marine European Trade Show (METS) in November 2010. Designed to be carried by leisure sailors, this compact and lightweight beacon gives individuals direct contact with international search and rescue services via an integral 406 MHz beacon. The beacon operates on the global COSPAS SARSAT satellite communication system.

With intuitive activation, robust waterproof construction and ergonomic grip, this lifesaving piece of equipment is reliable and simple to use.

Another revolutionary Kannad Marine product, the SafeLink 406 MHz Emergency Position Indicating Radio Beacon (EPIRB) is the first ever EPIRB to have an integrated antenna and user-replaceable batteries. Its compact size, waterproof construction and vertical floating design makes it ideal for leisure boaters, who can enjoy peace of mind knowing  that, once activated, Safelink’s powerful 406 MHz signal will continue to transmit for at least 48 hours in temperatures as low as -20°c. The integral high accuracy GPS provides an accurate position transmitted on the COSPAS SARSAT satellite communication system to the international search and rescue authorities even from the most remote locations around the world.

The Kannad Marine brand already enjoys a strong reputation and market position in its home territory of France. Kannad Marine will be working closely with SSPI to expand brand awareness and strengthen sales across their full product range in the Americas. Survitec CEO, Doug Baxter, commented; “Survitec is very pleased to continue the association with Kannad following our acquisition of the marine business of Revere. This role forms part of strategic plans for our marine business in the US and globally. We look forward to working with the team to provide a seamless distribution network”.
