Ka’ana Wave Co enters production deal with AdvanTec
This week Ka’ana Wave Co. formally announced an agreement with leading manufacturer AdvanTec Global Innovations Inc. The partnership gives Ka’ana the resources required to rapidly scale up manufacturing to provide global service and support for their CM7-Series installations.
Ka’ana’s first CM7-Medium-wave machine, capable of producing a variety of deep-water, stationary waves, is already in production with the legacy marine engineering and manufacturing company.
“The importance of sourcing a manufacturing partner who understood our objectives and was invested in our success was paramount and working with a leadership team that was aligned with our goals was essential,” said Jamie Watson, CEO of Ka’ana. “With these considerations, we determined that AdvanTec Global Innovations Inc. was the ideal partner in supporting our team to design, engineer, and manufacture our CM7-Series machines.”
Jamie says the CM7-Series wave technology was conceived to bring surfing to surf-less communities and that the partnership guarantees they will deliver on that.
Brad Miller of AdvanTec says the partnership means more people surfing in formerly waveless locations.
“We are excited to apply our globally successful commercialization model to Ka’ana’s ground-breaking surf technology,” said Brad Miller “As technology and equity partners, we are confident we can significantly accelerate the worldwide rollout of Ka’ana wave projects. We are committed to the success of Ka’ana, the success of their customers, and helping introduce many thousands of people to the exciting sport of surfing.”
Vancouver-based Ka’ana Wave Co. Inc. provides access to surfing, for hotels, resorts, waterparks, municipalities, and mixed-use developments. Their CM7-Series wave machines produce a variety of stationary, deep-water waves, and can be installed in an existing body of water.
