The history of Centek Industries is basically the same as the history of marine wet exhaust in general. Way back in 1962 in Boca Raton, FL, Vernay Plastics began what eventually grew to become Centek Industries. In the early days, pioneers in the industry like John Ford developed nearly all the critical designs used by boat builders and repair shops around the globe. Today that tradition continues and Centek is the premier designer and manufacturer of marine exhaust systems.
Centek Industries is now located in Thomasville, GA – a thriving small town in the Southwest corner of the state. Here in Thomasville, the climate is stable and the skilled workforce is second to none. Many of the craftsmen and women have been with Centek for over 25 years and have always been what sets us apart. Building the best exhaust components and systems for the best boats in the world is what we do and we are proud of it! Whether propulsion engines or gen-sets, ski boats to mega yachts and all in between, we can design and build it for you.
If we were to brag, we might tell you that all of our products are Lloyd’s Register Type approved and that we recently made the leap and earned the prestigious ISO Certification. Our goal is, and always has been, to provide the best solution at a fair price. We know that boat builders and owners are counting on us and we don’t take that responsibility lightly.
Here’s to the next 50 years!
