Cowan Manufacturing PTY is based in New South Wales, where it produces and supports transportable recompression chambers and other life-support equipment for the Australian navy and other defence markets.

Chief executive Nick Henry said: “The acquisition of Cowan broadens the group’s offering to the Australian navy and further enhances our capability in the defence and commercial diving sectors.”
