Discover our rich history

Our 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 the rest is history. Dagnall founded RFD, the original Survitec company, all in a garden shed in Surrey, England.

In 2020, we celebrated a century of being buoyant in survival. Visit our virtual museum to delve deeper into our history and learn how it has shaped who we are today. Learn about the lifesaving products we have pioneered since our founding and explore how we protect the lives of our customers, their passengers and crew when it matters the most.
