WESMAR is a leading-edge technology company that has built significant brand name recognition in the marine products industry since 1965. The pioneering success of WESMAR has been driven by constant innovation and technological breakthroughs in three major business segments: Sonar, Vessel Stabilizers, and Bow Thrusters.
In each product category, WESMAR is a recognized industry leader for advanced technology, quality, and customer service.
WESMAR's history is an amazing story of technology, innovation, and successful equipment design. WESMAR pioneered sonar for the fishing industry by inventing the first sonar utilizing solid state electronics. This technology breakthrough not only made sonar more reliable but allowed it to be manufactured at a cost affordable for fisherman, thereby revolutionizing commercial fishing.
Several years later WESMAR invented the dual prop counter-rotating bow thruster, and the electronic gyro powered fin stabilizer systems for pleasure yachts. Today WESMAR continues to innovate, not only in product design and development, but in the implementation of world class manufacturing, quality management systems, state of the art business information systems, and a progressive management that leverages the incredible human capital that exists within the company.
