Outpacing the marine industry’s overall growth trajectory, Schmitt & Ongaro Marine Products, manufacturer of steering wheels, horns, wipers and other high-quality components for recreational and commercial vessels, posted record sales figures for 2017. The company saw a 9.2% increase over the same period in 2016, with a three-year overall growth total of 37.8%.

Several factors account for this exemplary growth. Schmitt & Ongaro continues to develop and market new, innovative marine steering wheels for aftermarket and OEM. The ability to provide boatbuilders semi-custom products has strengthened its customer base. Additionally, the company made purchasing easier for its European customers by accepting SEPA payments.

“With consistent growth throughout 2017, we’ve been able to put substantial energies into R&D,” said Schmitt & Ongaro Marine president, Tim Schmitt. “We’re excited about the new products we’re rolling out in 2018 and future projects that are in the design phase.”

Schmitt & Ongaro Marine manufactures a wide range of innovative and superior quality marine steering wheels, horns, wiper systems, control arms and knobs, and accessories. The company offers some of the strongest product warranties in the industry and exceptional customer service.
