Yamaha Marine Group renames propeller subsidiary

Yamaha Marine Group announced today the renaming of its wholly owned subsidiary Precision Propellers Industries to Yamaha Marine Precision Propellers.

Yamaha Marine Group announced today the renaming of its wholly owned subsidiary Precision Propellers Industries to Yamaha Marine Precision Propellers and discontinuing production of non-Yamaha branded propellers.

Yamaha purchased Indianapolis-based Precision Propellers Industries in 2008 to better serve customers with stainless-steel propellers for an ever-increasing number of new boat/motor applications. The purchase strengthened production capacity and helped ensure high-quality propellers for Yamaha Outboards, while fostering continued growth for the brand.

Since then, Yamaha Marine has experienced double-digit growth in propeller demand year-over-year due to advances in propeller technology and performance enhancements such as its Shift Dampener System, the company said.

As a result, Yamaha Marine has added personnel, equipment, and expanded shifts as it continues to monitor propeller trends.

“Today, more than ever, we are focused on meeting the demands of Yamaha customers, so the time was right to change the name of the plant to reflect that direction,” Yamaha Marine Group vice president Bill Boehman said in a statement. “And while we will continue to produce our Turbo Propellers, which are a key part of Yamaha’s endless propeller solutions, we will discontinue production of non-Yamaha branded propellers to increase capacity even further.”

Yamaha continues to expand its Endless Propeller Solutions, most recently with the launch of the Talon SDS Propeller family — high-performance aluminum propellers for mid-range outboards.

In June of this year, Yamaha introduced the Talon Pontoon SDS Propeller specifically for mid-range powered pontoons, and continues to add SDS enhancement and pitch options for its high-demand saltwater family of propellers, such as Reliance SDS, Saltwater Series XL SDS, and Performance and Performance XT brands.
