Happy New Year to all of our customers and friends!
We want to share a few thoughts to summarize the end of the year. 2016 has been an incredible year for us – we’ve grown from offering just thrusters and enclosures to a full product line of subsea components. We launched some of our most popular products like the Bar30 pressure sensor, Fathom-X tether interface board, Lumen Subsea Light, Fathom tether, and our favorite, of course, the BlueROV2.
We also grew as a company, doubling our staff and tripling our facility size to accommodate all of the new products. We increased from five to nearly thirty distributors who are working hard to make sure our products are accessible and well-supported all around the world. We have a lot of new customers and we’re incredibly proud to support hundreds of businesses, schools, and teams – seeing your projects and applications is the most rewarding part for us.
We have no plans of slowing down anytime soon! I want to give you a little taste of what’s to come in 2017.
We have an exciting and fun campaign coming in January that you’ll want to jump on quickly. We’re adding some important facility upgrades here in March, and we’ll have a big product launch in June, fittingly one year after the launch of the BlueROV2. As always, we’ll have new product launches throughout the year – there are a few in particular that we are very excited about!
We wish you all a wonderful New Year!
– Rusty and the Blue Robotics Team
