Marine Technology Inc.
After nearly a decade of record-breaking performances, race wins, World Championships, and design awards, we at MTI continue to focus on bringing radical new ideas to the world of performance powerboating. Our ultra modern facilities in Wentzville, Missouri and Green Bay, Wisconsin are staffed by a highly trained team of individuals dedicated to producing the finest performance pleasure and race boats on the market today. Many of the exclusive processes we employ in the Marine Technology product line are the direct result of our extensive experience on the racecourse. We are a privately held corporation; so we are able to concentrate our efforts on building boats of the highest caliber and have only our clients and race teams to answer to, not share holders.
Opened in early 2005, our new 55,000 square foot Wentzville, Missouri facility houses our corporate headquarters, production, painting, rigging, and final assembly operations. Our Wentzville plant was created from the ground-up to provide a smooth workflow and increase our production of new boats in addition to providing quicker turn-around service for our race teams. The Missouri facility boasts a 2000 square foot cross flow painting booth, computerized paint mixing and graphics department, climate controlled post curing area, upholstery shop, computerized parts department, and engineering offices. Our lamination plant in Green Bay, Wisconsin continues to lead the industry, employing the latest in advanced construction techniques.
Our success at MTI hasn’t been overnight and it hasn’t been by accident either. It’s the product of over 25 years of hard work, devotion, and innovative thinking. The driving force behind all of this is company president Randy Scism, whose hands-on racing background stretches back over twenty years with an impressive resume of race wins and championship winning performances. MTI boats are the number one choice of winning race teams for one good reason, because being racers, we are able to design our boats from the racer’s perspective and, while some boat manufacturers build race boats as an afterthought, we race to improve the quality, performance, and safety of our pleasure boats.
A self described speed sports junkie who grew up in boating, MTI President Randy Scism began boat racing over 20 years ago in a 20′ Hydrostream Vulture and worked up to larger cats before joining the Victory Team in Dubai as general manager and Class 1 throttleman in 1989. The well funded Victory Team’s racing efforts were highly successful competing in UIM Class 1, Class 2, and Class 3 racing. During that time Randy compiled an impressive resume with 10 race wins, 21 podium finishes, and a Class 1 World Championship in 1999. With a wealth of knowledge in design and engineering gained during his time at Victory Team, Randy formed Marine Technology in 1999 and immediately started production on the company’s first race and pleasure models, which were released in 2001. Since then, Randy has continued to guide MTI as our product line has evolved and expanded at a monumental rate. Today, our race series boats are the choice of more winning racers and series champions in the cat classes than any other manufacturer, and our pleasure boats have become vanguard in the industry, collecting product excellence and design awards one after another. Our philosophy has been, and will continue to be simple, to shape the future of offshore by building the best handling, fastest, and safest offshore performance powerboats.
