Survitec’s heritage of inflatable survival technology began in 1920 with a chance encounter between airship balloon expert Reginald Foster Dagnall and an old friend. The friend needed flotation solutions to save aircraft ditched at sea. Dagnall needed a new challenge – and so the deal was done. Dagnall founded RFD, the original Survitec company in a garden shed in, Surrey, England.

In 2020, Survitec celebrates a century of being buoyant in survival. Visit our virtual museum and delve deeper into our history and learn how it has shaped who we are today.
