We were proud to host, for the 6th year in a row, local high school students from Melbourne, FL on a field trip showing them how our business operates.
Students from Melbourne High School Business Academy were shown what happens when customers send in completed template kits. We have a scans department that takes mylar sheets covered in sharpie traced pieces that match the part of the boat the customer wants covered in custom SeaDek. They work hard to capture and generate precise imagery and an in-house CAD department then takes those files to create, with our CAT team’s input from the customers, one of a kind drawings.
These drawings include what color combination the customer chooses, the thickness as well as the texture of the product with any custom logos. From there our scheduling department gets the ball rolling to put the job out on the production floor. From there we have employees that specialize in pulling sheets in our warehouse approved by our quality team after being developed by our Research and Development Team.
Our transportation specialists will often drive from our warehouse to our headquarters after our production team uses various machines to laminate, texturize and apply PSA to our product. From there the product makes its way to our CNC machines for routing and edging. After that the product may make its way to our state of the art laser department for finishing touches before it gets a thorough once over from our Quality Control department.
Once the product is ready to be shipped we have a packaging team that works along side those that specialize logistics and shipping. Aside from those numerous roles we have an HR department, an accounting team, individuals that specialize in continuous improvement, quality, sales, safety, maintenance, professional installation, operations, and marketing, along with our senior leadership team.
We proudly employ over 150 employees and are constantly evolving and growing. Vice President of Marketing Jason Gardner said, “I get a lot of enjoyment sharing my passion for manufacturing in the marine industry and inspiring the next generation of creative minds.”
We are lucky to be located in the flourishing Space Coast area and are glad to support the next generation of business-oriented individuals who are curious to learn more about our company.
SeaDek customer Anthony Hunt of Purvis, Mississippi, recently decided to customize the flooring on his 2008 Sea Ray 230 Fission and he loves it!
Our CAD Designer Morgen Brohman helped design this project that turned out gorgeous. Hunt chose to go with Storm Gray over Cool Gray, brushed with 2″ teak pattern. Anthony designed his own custom logo that was placed throughout the cockpit to give his boat a truly one-of-a-kind feel.
If you are interested in custom SeaDek for your boat, please reach out to one of our Certified Fabricators or Installers to help you get the process started. They can make your boat look and feel new again.
We are proud to employ veterans from all branches of our military. Their service to our country has helped prepare them for roles in numerous departments in our organization that specialize in Logistics, Safety, Maintenance, Production, Packaging, Shipping, IT, R&D, and Quality.
On this Veterans Day we are grateful for our employees as well as all veterans. We proudly offer all active and retired military 15% off all products listed on our webstore. This discount can be redeemed at checkout through ID.me and is available all year round.
We hope everyone has a safe and happy Veteran’s Day and we thank all of those who have served.
We are proud of the Osceola Angler High School Fishing Club and their mission to properly prepare students to participate in tournament style fishing with proper technique, sportsmanship and ethics. They encourage the teens to catch and release while focusing on conserving aquatic and natural resources.
In addition to fishing in numerous tournaments, the club enjoys participating in events affiliated with the Florida Fish and and Wildlife Commission. Each year the club members volunteer with a children’s fishing derby and teach the next generation of anglers useful techniques.
This year SeaDek generously donated custom flooring on their 2019 Forest River Continental Enclosed Cargo Trailer. The flooring is Bahama Blue over Dark Gray featuring a laser Realtree WAV3 pattern. There are two sets of fish routed into the floor to help guide the teens on where to stand while holding their tournament catches and trophies.
We wish them all the best as they head into their 2019-2020 season.
For years our customers have been using their cooler pads to create additional seating on boats. Customer Ryan Burch of Hamstead, Maryland decided to take it one step further and match his 23MM Seafoam Green over White cooler tops with his coaming bolsters and seating areas!
SeaDek is proud to welcome new Certified Installers in the UK! Last month we conducted a training session at ProCast’s facility in Bristol, where we covered the technical aspects of SeaDek patterning, design, and installation.
The photo below has Jarrod Johnson showing proper techniques on how to template a boat and how to capture the exact pattern correctly.
The CNC machine that carefully routes each edge and pinline was shown to the group so they can fully grasp how the final product is made.
We welcome all our new Certified Installers to the SeaDek family!
