United Moulders Limited (UML) started manufacturing plastic injection mouldings in Hampshire , England over 45 years ago. The company originally specialised in the conversion of high performance engineering polymers into complicated products for the aerospace and defence sectors. Added value assembly and testing processes became firmly established in the company's culture.
The original MK3 automatic lifejacket inflator was developed for the Ministry of Defence, to primarily provide lifesaving assistance for naval military personnel. After the product was launched in 1964 the MK3 inflator was subsequently adopted by the leading commercial and leisure inflatable lifejacket manufacturer, Crewsaver of Gosport, Hampshire.
In 1998 the MK5 Automatic Inflation unit was launched along with a Manual Inflator, Oral Inflator and Manifold Adaptor. The product range, having been approved in accordance with the requirements of the CEN lifejacket Standards, was quickly adopted by the majority of European lifejacket manufacturers.
Currently, demand for inflation units is greater than ever and the manufacture and assembly of the products is undertaken in both England and China . All of the manufacturing and assembly processes are closely controlled by the company's quality system which is approved in accordance with the requirements of ISO 9001:2000.
Today, employees working together with a professional team of designers focus on upgrading the functionality and performance of existing products, whilst concentrating on the introduction of new devices, to ensure the UML range of lifesaving products benefit from continuous, world class, improvements.
