Ocean Safety has made three crucial appointments to enhance its current technical team, reinforcing its leadership position in the design, manufacture, and supply of marine safety equipment across the commercial, military and leisure marine sectors.


Leading the team known for its lifesaving design and innovation, Jamie Gunton joins as Technical Manager.

With considerable experience in product design and development in his previous roles as an Engineering Manager (Crewsaver) and a Global Product Design Engineer (Mustang Survival) Jamie is ideally positioned for his new role where he will be responsible for maintaining, strengthening, and developing Ocean Safety’s extensive range of vital lifesaving equipment.

Jamie will also be supervising the technical and product training teams across Ocean Safety’s liferaft and Man Overboard (MOB) ranges, including the world-renowned Jon Buoy MOB and Recovery range.

“I’m delighted to be joining Ocean Safety, a global leader in its field which has brought such innovative and vital lifesaving equipment to the different sectors of the marine industry,” says Jamie.

“I’m looking forward to leading this incredible team in maintaining and developing quality safety products, offering the highest level of performance, as well as working in line with Ocean Safety’s sustainability policy to help reduce the environmental impact of the marine industry.”


Josh Fielder is taking on the role of Product Category Manager (Lifejackets) to oversee the design and development of the leisure, commercial and military lifejacket ranges for Ocean Safety, and those of fellow Alliance Marine owned brands Typhoon International and Revere Survival.

His previous design and manufacturing experience, gained across various industries including a four-year tenure in the marine industry, makes Josh particularly well suited to his new role where he’ll be integral to the continuous development of Ocean Safety’s eponymous range of lifejackets.


Complementing the new additions to the technical team is Josh Belben, who joins as Product Designer. With product design experience from a variety of marine businesses, Josh will be involved in all aspects of design, development, and testing of new and existing liferafts, containers, MOB ranges, and accessories – taking the valuable feedback from end users and incorporating the improvements into the product ranges.

Ocean Safety Managing Director, Alistair Hackett, comments: “We feel privileged to welcome such a talented and experienced trio to our technical team.

“With the new additions to the team now in place, we’re more confident than ever that we can maintaining our position as the voice of marine safety for many years to come, supplying the most innovative safety products to commercial ship and superyacht builders, round the world racing and cruising yachts, offshore works, and our leisure customers.”
