Sabik Marine - New Zealand Update

Sabik Marine is the Marine division of Carmanah Technologies, Inc of Canada. Sabik Marine incorporates Carmanah, Sabik, EKTA and Vega branded marine AToN products.

As the world’s largest marine AToN manufacturer, Sabik Marine offers one of the widest range of products to meet almost every application required in the marine AToN sector.

As of 30 September 2018, production of all Vega products has moved from Porirua, Wellington to Europe.

Regrettably most NZ based Vega staff have been made redundant due to this decision, and Vega's premises have been sold. As a result, there has also been some key personnel changes as well.

Ian Guild has been appointed Sabik Marine Regional Sales Manger for Australia, New Zealand and the Pacific. Chris Cooper is still Wellington based, and is the Product Support and Service Manager for Sabik Marine in this region.

Ian Jones, formerly Vega’s ANZPAC Business Development Manager, has now joined Sensor Systems (NZ) Ltd in a similar role for the NZ and Pacific Markets.

So key personnel from Vega that you would have likely dealt with are still available, so whilst some changes have occurred their combined knowledge and experience is retained and still locally accessible.

See below for their new direct contact email addresses.

Updated Website:

We have now added all ETKA and Vega products to our website, so all Sabik Marine AtoN current product offerings can now be viewed on one website for your convenience.

If there is anything that you would like to know about any of our products, please contact us and we will be happy to help.
