Watch behind the scenes as a regualtor is made.

The best dives, the best kit.

In 2014 we installed a solar farm on the roof of our UK manufacturing facility. Since then we have generated enough power to run some of our machinery every day and charge our company cars. If we have spare we can even sell our renewable energy back to the grid, which then powers other homes and businesses.

So there you have it, conclusive evidence that the sun does shine in the UK (sometimes!)

As part of our commitment to reducing our environmental footprint, our rubber and hard plastic waste is reground in-house. The properties of the reground material allow it to be blended back in with virgin material and reused in other products, with no impact on quality or performance.

UK dive equipment manufacturer eliminates general waste going landfill.

Apeks Marine Equipment has reached a new industry-leading achievement of sending zero non-hazardous waste to landfill from its Blackburn based headquarters, including waste from the factory, warehouse and offices.

The military has been using Apeks regulators for over 20 years and now Apeks has put that military expertise into a brand new military specification regulator, exclusively for the consumer market.

Blackburn-based kit manufacturer Apeks, part of the global dive and swim company Aqua Lung International, has continued with its switch to green by installing 400 solar panels on the roof of its purpose built factory in the UK. 

The culmination of 40 years of the best-of-British precision engineering and technical capability, global diving equipment manufacturer Apeks is proud to now make public a very special limited-edition regulator: the Black Sapphire.

Global diving equipment manufacturer Apeks is getting ready to launch something very special at Dive 2014, the UK's largest dedicated dive show. The culmination of 40 years of British precision engineering and technical capability, the new product will mark the anniversary of a company that was founded by two people with a passion for diving and quality engineering.

Scuba diving specialist Apeks Marine Equipment has shown how a Lancashire company can design and manufacture a world class product and thrive even in the current economic downturn. The only vertically integrated manufacturer of diving regulators in the world, making all the components from raw materials at its purpose built factory in Blackburn, Apeks has been awarded Manufacturing Business of the Year at the Red Rose Awards which celebrate business in Lancashire.
