The history of Centek Industries is the history of marine wet exhaust

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 marine industry like John Ford developed nearly all the critical designs used by boat builders and repair shops around the globe.  Today the tradition of innovation continues, and Centek Industries is now the parent to a family of companies that include Centek Marine, Delta-T Systems, Fortress Pilings, and Fiberglass Tubing Supply.

 Centek Marine is the premier designer and manufacturer of marine exhaust systems and is 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, Centek can design the build the perfect exhaust system for you.

If we were to brag, we might tell you that all our products are Lloyd’s Register Type approved and that we are one of the few companies in the industry whose quality program passes the rigors of the ISO 9001:2015 certification standards.  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.

Let’s get busy on your next project!
