Customizing products for you is an
important part of our business.
Our factory is a "job shop" which means it manufactures products
only when customers place an
order. We do not make large amounts of products to hold in inventory hoping that a
particular customer will place an order some day. Except, for
which we call the "factory brand". We try to keep some of
everything in stock for fast delivery to our dealers.
Notice the difference of a "job shop" verses the national
brand distributors (self-described as "manufacturers"). They
place large orders at an OEM factory (like ours) and they have the
inventory until it is sold. When sold, the "national brand"
that order from offshore manufacturers have to wait extended periods
to get the next shipment. So that is why the dive store occasionally
has to wait and wait months for your back-orders. If our factory makes
your items, you may have to wait 2 to 4 weeks depending on the
number of orders in production.
All new designs and
"customizing" begins with your ideas or needs. You are the
boss and they are your designs. We have the
ability to assist you in designing or you can present us with your
completed design and we'll take it from there.
Here are some of the basic reasons:
Specialty BCs, lift bags, and gear
Totally new BC design for your brand of
of the diver may require special design changes.
Add your store or organization logo
patch to our BCs and bags.
Special mix of fabric colors on our
Amer-Sea BCDs or bags.
How to get started?
Call us to discuss your idea
Send us your sketch or finished
technical drawing, or meet with us to discuss a concept. We can take
your sketch or ideas and convert them into CAD (Computer Aided Design)
drawings so any welding dies will be exactly what you want.
BCs take a little longer to make but they are worth it!!
is an example of making a BC for a new diver.
|The local dive shop,
Sunny Seas in New Port Richey, FL. had to come up with a special
BC for a new diver that could not wear a standard BC. So they
called us with basic changes which we discussed. We prepared a
drawing which was quickly approved. Next it had to be
scheduled into our flow of production. Then special handling was
required through the entire manufacturing process because
several different departments in the factory are involved in
making a BC. So, it took about 3 weeks from approval of the
sketch until it come out of the factory.
Just in time for her to practice
before herwater dive.
Some things are simply worth the
extra several of weeks.

Even though there is a custom fee. It is never
enough to pay for all the time and special handling that goes
into a project like this.
On the other hand, one cannot live by profit alone. The
gratification, from helping one more very special diver, is
sometimes enough. Just look at that smile.
