GREAT Yarmouth based Applied Acoustics proudly announced it reached a significant milestone at the Oceanology International exhibition in London recently. The company has been supplying subsea acoustic equipment for 21 years and celebrated with a champagne and strawberries reception on their stand at the show.
Established in 1989 and initially trading from an old goat shed in Belton, Applied Acoustics designs and manufactures subsea tracking systems and marine seismic power supplies for offshore survey companies, defence and oceanographic institutions located all over the world.
More than 70pc of their products are exported to established markets such as the USA and Canada, through to the emerging economies in West Africa, India and China.
Managing director Adam Darling said: “We started from very small beginnings but now our products are in use all over the world. I particularly wanted to thank our customers for their loyalty over the years, as well as our many overseas agents, so a reception here at Oceanology in London seemed like the perfect opportunity.
“It's been really enjoyable and the years have passed quickly, but I'm now looking forward to the next 21.”
Applied Acoustics launched two new products at the show - a small diver/ROV tracking system for use in coastal waters from workboats and a large 12,000Joule power supply unit used to interrogate seabed sediment layers.
