Sealegs Moves to Larger Location
Auckland, 22 September 2005: Sealegs International is moving to larger premises to meet the growing demand for its amphibious boats.
The move by Sealegs to a new manufacturing and office location in the North Harbour Industrial Park, about 1km from its current premises, takes effect at the end of October.
The new Sealegs building will increase the current final assembly manufacturing facility by 300%. The move to larger premises coincides with new staff joining the company in the roles of Design Engineer, Production Technician and Administration Assistant.
Managing Director, Mr David McKee Wright, said that the move will allow Sealegs to centralise its sales, administration, research and development, final-assembly and shipping all to one location, with improvements in efficiencies and communication.
“In the last few months Sealegs International has experienced demand for its amphibious marine craft beyond that of its current manufacturing capacity. The new facility will help in increasing monthly production capacity,” he says.
