Shane Newman – Founder and CEO

Prior to founding Orcalight, Shane spent the bulk of his career in the industrial lighting sector, first as an R&D engineer and then as Production Manager with Derwent Systems, part of the Extreme CCTV Group later transitioning to Bosch after a takeover. With a number of patents/applications to his name, Shane has focussed the last few years developing a number of new high-power LED technologies, some of which already deployed are turning the dive light market on its head. New innovations are already in the pipeline with some exciting developments due soon.

“I believe that the dive industry is an ideal market for our technologies, it’s a demanding environment with demanding professionals who expect the best kit and service. I intend to build this company by treating every client as though they are an ambassador of Orcalight and we can only achieve that if every single one of them is thrilled with our kit, our support and our service. I can’t do this alone though, we need you, our clients, to tell us what else we can do to make this the best, most reliable and versatile kit in the world.
