Initially, Indmar was just an idea for a second career. At the time, Dick Rowe had just finished his 20- year job at the US Marine Corps, and with his wife Donna they decided to create a small distribution network for the supply of industrial and marine equipment; Indmar Products Company, Inc.
Among their early products were industrial and irrigation pumps based on V-8 automobile engines. Then there were several engines for yachts on board for the manufacturers of jet boats. At first it was a matter of bolting "off the parts of the shelf." But the quality simply did not exist. So Dick began to create his own basic subcomponents to meet the standards of quality and durability. This decision paid off.
It soon became known that the marinated Indmar boards were built to higher standards. They were more reliable and durable. And the kicker ... was that the performance of these new Indmar boats was up to par with the big boys ... in many cases even better. The boat manufacturers were pleased to learn that doing business with a company led by an experienced marine was easy, no frills. The product worked as promised or better, and customer service was honest, polite and professional.
To focus solely on creating first-class inboard marine engines, distribution has been curtailed. And Indmar has built the most efficient and modern factory in the world for the production of internal engines.
Indmar achieved success that seemed out of reach 45 years ago. And is a proven leader in the promotion of on-board power technology. “I don't think anyone knows their limits until they go beyond their limits,” says Indmar President Chuck Roe.
