Our brief history:
In August 2013 when well-known Geraldton identity, Deane Cleaver, decided to take advantage of the opportunity to start a marine engine repair business he had no idea of the latent demand for his services in the Midwest region. He commenced Geraldton Mobile Marine as a sole trader with the assistance of a good friend who also had 15 years’ experience working on outboard motors.
His intention was to operate out of a small but suitable shed in Geraldton which provided a workshop base for engine servicing and repair to clients in the area from Dongara up through Kalbarri. Despite using only ‘word of mouth’ and Business Cards as his promotion strategy the demand for his services grew rapidly. So much so that the operation has twice been forced to move to larger premises. We are now located at 21 Webberton Road, Geraldton.
Sensing the need to further broaden the organisation’s products and services offering Deane negotiated a Dealership arrangement with Suzuki Marine in July 2014. This important milestone in the organisation’s evolution reintroduced an authorised Suzuki outboard dealer to the region. Around the same time the trading name was changed to Midwest Marine.
Six months later, after continually exceeding the monthly sales targets set him by Suzuki, and again recognizing customer’s demands, the dealership arrangements were expanded to include Mercury Marine. Achieving this further strategic objective effectively enabled Midwest Marine to access a full range of highly regarded products and genuine parts suitable to meet the demands of both the recreational and commercial boating community.
