Company Overview
Marine Innovations, Inc. has been the North American industry leader in inclined elevators for 30 years.  Our roots are based in the residential lift market, but our expertise quickly brought us to add commercial inclined elevator systems to our portfolio.  A client-focused company, Marine Innovations is driven by research, development and continuous improvement. 
 
Our systems are engineered to meet or exceed ASME A17.1-2013, Section 5.1 and 5.4 standards for inclined elevators. Our systems are approved for use in some of the most stringent states. Since no two hills are the same, each system is designed for that exact application. Our staff visits each site to build a firm estimate and provide the information required to engineer and build a strong, safe lift system.  Our factory trained installers professionally and efficiently install each system. Marine Innovations backs each system with the best warranty in the industry and provides exceptional factory support.
 
A Marine Innovations, Inc. inclined elevator will provide a homeowner with a durable, dependable lift to allow them to effortlessly enjoy their views and waterfront or provide a luxury resort, multi-unit residential facility, marina or any other commercial property a premium experience to their guests, hill access without steps.
 
Company History
Mike and Lori Botzet started Marine Innovations in 1991. Located in St. Paul, Minnesota, they manufactured and marketed the Bank Hoist inclined elevator. As the company grew, they moved to Frazee, Minnesota in 1997. Founder Mike Botzet was awarded a US patent for a bank hoist braking apparatus in 2001. In 2005 Marine Innovations elevator systems were approved for use on the Michigan Sand Dunes as they cause less erosion than stairs. In 2012 Nick Botzet, Mike and Lori’s son, joined Marine Innovations as sales and project manager. Sales growth has continued through 2020 with an increased dealer base and continued marketing throughout North America, Central America and the Caribbean.
