Our acoustic equipment is developed and built by our partner Neptune Sonar, who are located on a 25-acre site in East Yorkshire. With a 60,000 square metre trials lake and a floating calibration laboratory the site provides an extensive range of facilities supporting every aspect of acoustic transducer development from modelling and design to final product acceptance. As an ISO 9001:2008 certified company, the “on site” calibration facility ensures that Neptune Sonar’s production transducers are supplied to the highest quality standards using a monitored programme of free-field acoustic testing on a continuous basis.

Our electric stunners are developed by our partner Silsoe Livestock Systems and built by LCI in Dorset. All equipment meets EU standards.
