Emerald Marine Products Corporation was founded by Dr. Page Read in 1996 specifically addressing the need to alert crew of a man-overboard situation. Dr. Read created the original ALERT product line after an epiphany one night while sailing. He realized that if he fell overboard, no one on his sailboat would know. In 2001, Dr. Read introduced a digital version of the ALERT, now known as the ALERT2 product, to notify the vessel and crew on-board of a fall-overboard.
Emerald Marine Products has always manufactured their reliable and durable marine safety products in Seattle, Washington. We are proud that all our major components and assembly occurs in the United States.
