In April 2013 Avon Rubber p.l.c. acquired the business and assets of VR Technology (“VR”), a market leader in diving rebreather systems and dive computers. Over the past year steps have been taken to retire the commercial VR Technology brand and launch Avon Protection Underwater Systems (AUS) for military markets. AUS’s key technologies will complement and enhance Avon’s current and planned product ranges and increase respiratory protection opportunities for the Group, in particular with navies around the world.
Avon Underwater Systems (AUS) has two key elements;
• A skill set in design and development in electro-mechanical and software engineering, specialising in life support related products
• A range of product supporting the military and commercial diving markets
