About Us

Here at Sartech, we specialise in search and rescue beacons and related safety electronics, with over a quarter of a century’s worth of experience and knowledge in the industry.

First established in 1989 by Peter Forey, we have grown from a company originally set up as a design and marketing consultancy, developing ideas in conjunction with ARG Electrodesign, to one offering distribution, sales, and service for all major brands in the sector.

Over the years we’ve been based in a number of different locations and just over a decade ago in response to the growing market for sales and service of safety equipment for the leisure market, we up-scaled to a much larger premises in Redhill, Surrey, which we share with our sister company, Kilo Marine Electronics Ltd.

If you want to buy from people who know what they are talking about - or just want some unbiased advice - you've come to the right place.  We have ISO9001 quality accrediation, and participate in international standards work via RTCM and CIRM.
