Born out of adversity, our mission is to protect and save lives.

Now part of Wescom Group, MRT has been manufacturing and supplying commercial man overboard safety solutions and marine safety equipment for over 40 years. This experience has led MRT to become industry specialists in aviation, oil and gas, defence, commercial marine and renewable sectors worldwide.

MRT is a global leader and continue to develop innovative Personal Locator Beacons (PLB’s) for both commercial and recreational applications.


Saving Lives Since 1975.
A Company Steeped in History

Our founder David Marshall invented the PLB after a dramatic rescue from shark-infested waters. No wonder we always put the person in danger at forefront of our decisions.

You can trust our technology to safeguard your life.

We Design, Manufacture and Distribute World-Leading Man Overboard Safety Solutions from:


Our recreational PLBs are designed to give you ultimate protection; whatever your activity, wherever you are.

  • MRT are a pleasure to deal with. They helped to distribute more than 130 lifejackets to our technicians across the country – and simplified the recertification process to save huge amounts of administration time.

    - Lynsey Blanchard, SGRE Offshore BA and Technician Support

  • We chose the sMRT survival products to protect our crew and RYA trainees because we know just how crucial the automatic water activation technology in their PLBs is for detecting an MOB incident as quickly as possible. MRT’s MOB solutions are widely regarded as the best there is by most seafarers.

    - Ian Matthews – Director for Nautical Circle

  • We're really pleased with the recent partnership agreed with MRT to supply us with a reliable, efficient and cost-effective solution for lifejackets and PLBs.

    - Neil Rowley, Construction Operations Manager for SGRE Offshore (UK)

  • We are proud to be distribution and service partners for MRT’s range of Man Overboard (MOB) survival solutions – their products are innovative, robust and affordable.
