Who are we? Where are we? And what do we do?

Who are we? Where are we? And what do we do?

We are Seatriever International , a rapidly growing, innovative and entrepreneurial consumer goods business with offices in Cheshire, China and the USA.

Our award-winning business was founded in 2007 following a successful pitch on UK tv show Dragons Den by our CEO, James Halliburton. The original idea was for Waterbuoy, an invention to help retrieve essential items accidentally dropped overboard by sailors. The device incorporated an auto-inflating illuminated balloon that was activated on contact with water to provide a location beacon.

As James carried out development tests on sample balloons at home, he was watched by his young next door neighbours. The children were fascinated and they wanted some of the illuminated balloons to play with. This inspired James to create illooms LED light up balloons - now sold in over 90 countries around the globe.

As a growing business, with exciting plans for the future, we are recruiting for passionate, results-driven people to join our expanding team in several areas.
