ABOUT ENGINEERED MARINE PRODUCTS.
"As competition continues to grow in a global economy, the need for cost controls and competitive pricing becomes even greater. This need has led to the growth of Engineered Marine Products as a significant supplier to numerous manufacturers, nationally recognized brands, and re-builders."
For over 30 years, Engineered Marine Products has been successfully serving both the OEM and marine after-market by providing superior quality , reliable, and competitive marine products at affordable prices .
Since its establishment, EMP has developed thousands of tools for both OEM and after-market requirements and has built trusted relationships with international manufacturing partners. This allows EMP to operate as a fully independent unit, capable of employing unconventional methods to improve quality, reduce costs, amortize tooling and piece prices, and become a reliable and profitable sourcing alternative.
Engineered Marine Products Serves Each Customer’s Individual Needs.
EMP recognizes that each company has a unique focus and cannot be well served by one strategy. We have many strengths which allow us to accomplish this goal. Most important is our ability to effectively engineer and source products in both the domestic and international markets.
EMP has developed several programs that benefit the diverse needs of our customer base. We are able to offer them the option of using a brand of products with a strong reputation for quality, or allow them to create a reputation of their own through private-labeling. In addition, we are able to supply parts for the large-scale production needs of an OEM or a rebuilder. We pride ourselves in treating every customer with the same personal and professional courtesy no matter how large or small their needs.
Due to the vast array of manufacturing disciplines that we employ we are able to approach each project from a variety of different angles. For example, a component that traditionally would be produced as an investment casting and then machined can be produced by EMP as an injection molded metal part. This process permits us to produce a part out of 8620 steel with zero machining requirements and 100% repeatability at a fraction of the original cost.
It Is Never “Just Business”.
One of the greatest benefits of doing business with EMP, and what continues to set us apart in our industry, is our desire and ability to develop and sustain true partnerships. We treat our customers and our vendors as friends, as well as partners. This practice has led to a high level of mutual respect which has allowed us to build what we believe to be the most competitive and comprehensive program available in the market today.
