Si-Tex Marine Electronics is celebrating its 40th anniversary and launching a new website for Si-Tex and Koden products as it commemorates its fourth decade in business.

Si-Tex president Ted Bodtmann, who has been with the company since its inception, began his industry career in 1967 with Ra-Com Electronics before moving to Si-Tex.

Si-Tex sales vice president Allen Schneider has worked in the marine electronics industry since 1973. He joined Si-Tex in 1985 as northeast sales manager and was at Simrad/Navico from 1998 until 2008. Allen rejoined Si-Tex when it opened its current headquarters on Long Island, N.Y., in 2009, and the company credits him with playing an instrumental role in its growth.

Service manager Chuck Finch brings 25 years of experience. He has been a technician, worked as a director for a manufacturer, managed service departments and opened his own marine electronics dealership.

Si-Tex’s line of electronics includes radar systems, high-performance sonars, MFD chart plotter/sounder/radars, precision GPS navigation systems, heading sensors, autopilots and VHF communications.

Every Si-Tex product is backed by the company’s two-year warranty and Long Island-based service department.

In conjunction with its 40th anniversary, Si-Tex launched a revamped corporate website. The site is designed to help boaters, mariners and dealers get information on the Si-Tex and Koden product lines.
