COMMITTED TO THE CRAFT
Quality service, integrity, and hard work. That’s what gets us out of bed every morning. And it’s what keeps our customers coming back. Because Saunders is about more than just delivering on a promise and ensuring a smooth transaction. It’s about relationships. That’s the way we’ve been doing business since 1959. And that’s how we will continue to build our business: by relentlessly serving the marine community with quality, integrity, and a commitment to exceeding expectations every day. We’re committed to excellence. We’re committed to our customers and to each other. We’re committed to the craft.
FAMILY OWNED AND OPERATED
In 1959, Saunders Engine & Equipment Company, Inc. was founded in Mobile, Ala., by Andrew Saunders, Sr. From the beginning, Mr. Saunders established customer service as the primary responsibility of the company. He believed that if you “did a man a good job,” he would call you back. Today, the Saunders family is still a big part of the company. Members of the second and third generation represent the majority of company ownership and are currently active in management.
COMPREHENSIVE ARRAY OF CAPABILITIES
With a “Can-Do” attitude, our skilled employee group ranges from diesel service technicians to master craftsmen in marine carpentry and paint. We keep all of these skills in-house through aggressive recruiting and retention of our talented staff.
We believe that the natural resources provided to the boating community must be preserved and maintained. At our boatyard, we exceed all EPA requirements for effluent control and runoff elimination. Our field service team is very careful to contain all oils, coolant, refrigerant, paints or other toxic material.
Saunders Yachtworks supports marine preservation and conservation through organizations whose mission it is to enhance natural marine resources. These organizations include the Coastal Conservation Association, Billfish Foundation and Nature Conservancy. We support our industry through our activity in the American Boat Builder and Repairers Association and membership in the American Boat and Yachting Council. Finally, we support our local economy through membership in the Coastal Alabama Business Chamber.
