The Vega Story

As of August 1, 2017, Carmanah Technologies Corporation (www.carmanah.com) has acquired Vega. This acquisition brings together Sabik Marine (www.marine.sabik.com), Carmanah, Ekta, and Vega to create the global leader in the marine aids-to-navigation market.

Vega is known for its high performance, highly reliable products. Some of our leading edge PEL sector lights have been in service guiding ships safely for over 20 years. Vega's point of difference is that we focus relentlessly on optical performance right from the early design stage of each product.

Vega employs a specialist product design team with global expertise in software development, electronic circuit board design, and solar power optimization. 

The purpose-built factory in Wellington, New Zealand accommodates a fully-equipped machine shop. Most Vega lights are machined from marine alloys to provide strength, dimensional stability and heat dissipation. Also on site is a comprehensive assembly and testing environment for electronic and optical systems. This development facility includes two computerized zero-length photometry facilities and an environmental chamber for testing extremes of temperature and humidity.

The emphasis on optical performance is core to the design of Vega products, and has allowed Vega to produce the most efficient and capable LED beacons on the market.
