in 1988 as a specialty lighting company to fill a need for
search and rescue operations and distress situations. It
immediately set-up business in Newfoundland, dedicated to saving
the lives of seamen and airmen in both the military and civilian
sectors. It quickly developed into the market leader for the
regulated cruise line industry with its’ patented “Digi-Lite”,
which was used on the majority of onboard life jackets. Since
then it has developed numerous other leading technology SAR
products, and several new products are currently in the
proto-typing and testing stages. John eventually sold his
ownership in EJETL, but stayed on to continue to develop new
products for Rutter throughout the years, including the worlds
first approved patented LED light for this market.

Gunter Weiss, President of Precimold visited Rutter in
Newfoundland to complete the transaction in person. Accompanied
by Daniel Marginson, General Manager of Precimold, and John
Brain who now works for Precimold as its’ R&D Project Leader,
the trio were eager to add this acquisition to the growing
Precimold portfolio. All manufacturing and final assembly work
will be gradually transferred to Precimold’s plant in Candiac as
the required regulatory approvals are acquired.
