SeaDek Marine Products, Rockledge, Fla., has been named one of five companies to receive technical assistance from NASA scientists as part of a technology docking program organized by NASA and the Economic Development Commission (EDC) of Florida’s Space Coast.
The alliance seeks to join commercial technology challenges with NASA expertise and resources to provide solutions for manufacturers and technology-based companies across all industries. Through the program, companies will have an opportunity to utilize the technological capabilities of NASA that exists in their own backyards, further stimulating the local economy and promoting the growth of manufacturing on the Space Coast.
As the originator and industry leader of EVA non-skid decking for the marine industry, SeaDek is embracing the chance to utilize the deep resources of America’s premier technological brain trust in Cape Canaveral. With a focus on material composition and formulation, NASA will assist SeaDek’s research and development team as they continue to push the boundaries of EVA non-skid products for the marine industry and other related applications.
The EDC is a not-for-profit partnership between the Brevard County Commission and the Space Coast business community. The EDC has been an invaluable asset to SeaDek for years, aiding them as they expanded their operations from their world headquarters in Rockledge, Florida.
