WHO WE ARE

Current Corporation began in 1986 as a small electrical product distributor with big aspirations. Over the years, Current has repeatedly adapted its main product lines to accommodate the changing markets and consumer demand. In 1995, The Law Enforcement line originated with ITT Night Vision, which in turn led to other products over the years.

In 1998, a request was made by BC Ferries to develop a product for their high-speed craft. The system developed incorporated two of our products, the Night Vision camera and the Xenon Searchlight. The first sale of the Night Navigator was completed in 1999 and has taken Current into an explosive global market. Though our product has endured many modifications and upgrades, we are on our way to becoming the leading supplier of Marine Imaging Systems worldwide for high-speed craft.

From 1999 to 2003, the number of employees in the Port Moody office rose from four to fourteen. Along with a small branch office in Nanaimo, dealers for our Night Vision product are located in Australia, New Zealand, Norway, Spain, France, Greece, Italy, China, Hong Kong, Taiwan, South Korea, the United States, Estonia, Kuwait, and the United Arab Emirates (UAE).

Current Sales Corporation went bankrupt in early 2014 and the company was purchased by Greg Menzies, re-opening the doors in August 2014 as Current Scientific Corporation, and bringing back many core employees from the old company. Since then, Current has invested heavily in engineering to design a new full range of products to satisfy the market needs. We have continued to hire more and more staff to facilitate these designs and builds, and create demand for them worldwide. By Fall 2020, Current had 26 employees, and had just opened up an office in the Netherlands.

 

OUR PURPOSE

To save lives and property at sea.

OUR MISSION
