Sealevel Programs Assigned DX Rating As Company Navigates Continued Essential Business Performance

May 15, 2020

Sealevel Systems, Inc. programs have been assigned a DX rating per the U.S. government’s Defense Priorities & Allocations System (DPAS). A DX rating is granted only to activities that are considered of the highest national priority and must be approved by the U.S. Secretary of Defense.

Sealevel’s essential status has been confirmed by these key customers and others:

  • BioMéreiux, Medical
  • Dynetics, Defense
  • L3 Harris, Public Safety
  • Leonardo DRS, Aerospace and Defense
  • Northrop Grumman, Aerospace and Defense
  • PeriGen, Medical

“Performing as an essential business during this time has not been without its challenges,” says Susan O’Hanlan, Sealevel’s chief operating officer. “We’ve worked proactively with our suppliers to make them aware of our status and communicate their role in maintaining the supply chain as we continue to design, manufacture and deliver products.” Every Sealevel employee travels with customer documentation reinforcing their role in supporting critical infrastructure. Social distancing, remote work schedules, more hand sanitizing stations, controlled meeting attendance and increased daily sanitization of high-touch surfaces are now incorporated in Sealevel’s ongoing operations.

Sealevel is actively encouraging employee activities and working on internal programs to boost employee morale. “We’ve been able to extend additional paid holidays for our team, post fun hand-washing songs throughout the facility and promote Wellness Wednesdays to encourage employees to get outside,” says O’Hanlan.

As a result of the continued needs of Sealevel’s customers and overall company growth, Sealevel has hired 12 new employees in their engineering, sales and production departments since January 1 of this year, growing the team by 18%.
