Nazmul Alam (Deputy Conservator) the representatives of Chittagong Port Authority and Mr Nasir Arif Mahmud (Joint Secretary) of Ministry of Shipping were impressed by Sealite’s in-house manufacturing facilities for both ocean buoys and marine lantern equipment, and the use of robotics in the production processes.
Accompanying Chittagong Port Authority Officials was Mr N.H. Khan of Multitech Systems, Sealite’s Bangladesh Distributor. Multitech Systems has been an avid and very passionate Sealite advocate and has shown the Sealite range of products to many Ports throughout Bangladesh since 2007.
