The manufacturer's who claim the world’s smallest personal locator beacon, UK-based Ocean Signal, have announced the appointment of All Sat Communications as its new distributor in Australia.

The Melbourne-based company specialising in satellite communications, will have exclusive responsibility for marketing and supplying Ocean Signal’s rescueME PLB1 to the outdoor, marine, aviation and industry-based markets.

Easy to use the rescueME PLB1 is suitable for a range of activities in the commercial and leisure segments.

All Sat Communications manager Ian Veitch said: “It is very exciting to be selected by Ocean Signal as the exclusive distributor for the rescueME PLB1. This product will fill the void in our range for a 406 MHz emergency beacon.

“The rescueME PLB1 is certainly an excellent product and we were immediately attracted to it as the world’s smallest and lightest PLB. The market response to the product has also been overwhelming from both land and marine users. Its size and features make it a very attractive safety product within the market place. It is much in demand by anyone travelling or participating in any outdoor activity.

“We have a solid background in distributing to retail stores, and government and corporate customers. Our team is committed to providing excellent customer service and back up support for the products we sell.”

Ocean Signal managing director Alan Wrigley commented: “Australia is a huge market for the rescueME PLB1 for all kinds of outdoor activities and also for workers in industries such as oil and mining who may be working in very remote regions. This product is very practical for a diverse range of people who need the reassurance of having a worldwide link to the emergency services.

“We are looking forward to working with All Sat Communications to further increase sales and awareness so that we can maximise all the opportunities for the PLB in Australia.”

All Sat Communications will be showing the Ocean Signal rescueME PLB1 at this year’s Sanctuary Cove International Boat Show in Queensland from Thursday, May 22 to Sunday, May 25 (Pavilion A Stand No.9).
