Scan Marine Inc. (SMI) was established on May 5, 1981, with primary purpose of providing marine equipment’s and gear requirements of fishing, shipping, and related industries.
During its two decades of existence, SMI is on the cutting edge in providing the Philippine fishing industry with top of the line commercial fishing equipment’s, being the sole distributor of the MARCO Global, Inc. of Seattle, USA (formerly known as MARCO Marine Seattle).
MARCO Marine specializes in the manufacture of hydraulically-powered machinery for the fishing industry and the development and implementation of fishing systems using these products.
Concurrently, SMI is also the sole distributor Furuno Electric Co., Ltd., a leading marine electronics corporation in Japan, Vertex Standard Co., Ltd., Ryokuseisha Corporation, and Koto Electric Co., Ltd.
On its third decade of service, SMI continue to diversify its product line. In March 2001, Bombardier (currently known as BRP) acquired the Johnson and Evinrude outboard engine assets of the bankrupt OMC company. With this transition, BRP tapped SMI as its official distributor for the Philippines.
The BRP brand has become synonymous with excellence in the field of recreational products. In outboard engines, BRP have redefined the marine industry’s standards of excellence with its Evinrude® and Johnson® outboards. The launch of Evinrude E-TEC marked the beginning of a new era in the outboard business and BRP will continue to be at the forefront of outboard engine technology.
While maintaining the conventional Two-Stroke and Four-Stroke Johnson® outboard engines, Evinrude® have designed a new outboard that leaves the past outboard technology way behind. The Evinrude® E-TECTMis a revolutionary new generation of cleaner, quieter and more powerful outboard engines. It is easy to own and operate and meets worldwide emissions standards (EPA, EU, and CARB 3-Star). E-TECTM engine pistons feature a NASA-developed alloy making them 2.5 times more stronger than the competion. Its unique lightweight design housed an incredible strong engine components and are tested in tough, real world conditions. The Evinrude® E-TECTMoutboard engine line up are Inline 2-cylinder, Inline 3-cylinder, V4, and V6.
The year 2008 saw the coming of new products from BRP. SMI took on its wing BRP’s top of the line recreational products: the Sea-Doo® Personal Watercrafts and Sport Boats and Can-AM® All Terrain Vehicle (ATV) and Side-by-Side Vehicle (SSV).
