How It All Began
B.A. Burwell founded Divers Equipment in 1959. Through the years, many things have changed. Equipment became more sophisticated, training standards evolved and the sport of SCUBA diving became an attainable sport for everyone, not just the rough and tumble divers of yesteryear. In 2000, B.A. Burwell retired and the shop was taken over by Rex Sharrai. After many years, the shop was transferred to the current owner Alan Shaw.
