One of only a few companies in all of Canada that develop remotely operated vehicles (ROVs), SEAMOR Marine has quickly grown over the past decade to offer a line of inhouse designed and assembled observation-class ROVs as well as a wide range of accessories and integrations.

“Our team is proud as a Canadian company to promote our unique underwater ROVs in a global market and continue to grow as an innovative leader in our industry. This funding will help boost the marketing process for SEAMOR: when potential customers are more easily able to find us and see our products, we know that we will win them over with our attention to quality, competitive pricing and attentive customer service." said Ma.
