For more than twenty-five
years Oceanic's goal to produce a premier line of regulators has not
changed. One distinguishing attribute that separates Oceanic from other
manufacturers is the commitment to vertical integration. All life support
products are designed, developed, manufactured, and tested in our 120,000
square foot Northern California facility. No other dive company goes to
these lengths to assure the quality of their products.
A good example of this process is the regulator manufacturing division.
State of the art machinery takes marine grade brass and feeds the stock
metal into various CNC (computer numerically controlled) machines which
cut, bore and polish finished parts in a matter of seconds. Custom
designed, computer controlled assembly and calibration stations insure
precision and tune each regulator one at a time to deliver its' optimal
It is this commitment, to have total control of the design, testing and
manufacturing process that insures the best in performance and highest
quality. With the most sophisticated testing laboratory in the industry,
Oceanic is able to test and retest regulator performance during the
development stage, making immediate changes if needed.
Throughout the plant, various departments have an expertise in
manufacturing items as simple as hose fittings to the most sophisticated
such as a high pressure transducer for a hoseless air integrated computer.
In 1999 Oceanic and it's manufacturing divisions received the
internationally recognized ISO 9001 designation, recognizing the quality
system in place that is adhered to daily to ultimately insure the highest
quality finished product and the highest possible level of customer
satisfaction. ISO 9001 is a highly recognized global standard for quality
control in not only manufacturing, but virtually every aspect of company
Our efforts have been rewarded. Oceanic is recognized as a leader in
regulator design and performance. Today our regulators are sleeker and
lighter, making breathing underwater the most natural thing to do.
