Industry Announcements

  • The Royal National Lifeboat Institution (RNLI) uses a load cell to weigh and test boats and other components critical to the ongoing work of the charity that saves lives at sea.
    A 5t Wirelink Plus and Handheld Plus digital display were recently delivered to the RNLI Inshore Lifeboat Centre (ILC).
    The ILC is respected across the globe as a centre of excellence for the building and maintenance of inflatable and rigid inflatable lifeboats, including the B class and D class lifeboats, and the lifeguards' inshore rescue boat, the Arancia (constructed under licence from Arancia of New Zealand). A team of over 70 boatbuilders, fitters and electricians are employed at ILC, including apprentices and supporting office staff. (December 23, 2015)
