• Designed to exceed expectations:   Be confident you’re being kept warm by 39 years of Finnish experience, designing boat heating systems for some of the harshest conditions in the world.

Trotac truly is a family business, there’s been three generations working in the store, and some of the staff for at least half that. Founded in 1972 by Pete Thomson, it started out with Pete and his wife supplying to the west coast commercial fishing fleet. All the kids helped in the store as well, with packaging and deliveries, and Campbell ended up partnering with his dad to help create the Trotac that exists today. Over time they have expanded to include the Government, recreational, scientific and work boat fleets. Now we are in our new location and at 20,000 square feet it should hopefully hold us for a long time to come.
