Geremarie began as a hobby. It started with a single CNC machine that our founder, Jim Schultz, placed in a friend’s shop and worked on outside the hours of his engineering job. But the hours on the machine grew along with Jim’s passion in design, manufacture, and iteration.
At Geremarie, we think in terms of possibility.
Our explosive growth began with a wake rack for boats. The expensive nature of aluminum componentry was common knowledge in the marine industry and the hopes to make them affordable for all users seemed an impossible task. But impossible gets Geremarie going. We redesigned and manufactured the part to be cool, functional, and cost less.
We repeated the process with hundreds of aluminum parts and Geremarie expanded from one employee to hundreds with orders in the tens of millions. But we never rested. The same passion that transformed a side-project into major manufacturer continues today as we constantly revise processes and invest in new equipment, people, training, and systems.
We are successful because of a culture of passion.
We spent five years conceptualizing and building every system and process in our current factory and then when it was finally finished and running optimally, we continued to tweak for optimum performance. Because some optimals are better than others. From where we sit, even a masterpiece of logistics, technology, and automation is only a stepping stone to something greater.
Geremarie is improving faster than the pace of technology. Sound impossible? It isn’t when we take bleeding edge design and machining tech and implement and integrate it in methods and efficiencies untouched by other manufacturers.
Take one tour of our facility and the definition of impossible will change for you, too.
