So to kick this thing off right, we'll start by sharing a fun short story to get you better acquainted with us.

Some History About How We Got Started

The story of why Firstmate Controls began starts with an avoidable injury. Owner's John and Julie worked together back in their dating years to put the boat away after a day out on the Mississippi. John would clean the outside of the boat, while Julie cleaned the inside. As usual, John had lifted the boat while Julie was onboard cleaning,  and then he stepped away. Julie decided to jump from the boat to the dock on her own while it was lifted and fell between the lift and dock. From those injuries stemmed the invention of the Firstmate remote control system!

Firstmate Controls officially started in 2005 in satellite communications providing contract engineering for larger firms and engineering services for smaller inventors. We have aided in bringing products to market not only in the marine market but also in the drive-through industry, trucking industry and hold multiple patents in communications. Our manufacturing facility is located in Labadie, MO, but we ship our top quality products all over America.

We are thankful to have a staff of dedicated employees who all have the same goal in mind. They are encouraged to be inventive; always look for improvements in design for what makes a better product; input is key. Most importantly ~ what comes out our facility is only a quality product. We do what we can to keep inventing, producing and manufacturing to keep America going!
