The government product division at Michigan Wheel is focused on solutions. Unlike other boat owners who can pick a standard propeller to fit their needs, our government and federal project clients have unique propulsion needs. Our job is to listen to what the application is and then custom-build the piece to the application’s specifications. Whether you know the exact measurements of your propeller and simply need a reputable builder, or if you only have an idea of what you’re looking for and need our engineers to design and make the exact propeller for you, we can do it with high tolerance, speed, and fuel efficiency and maintain reduced noise and vibration. All of our custom products feature the durability that Michigan Wheel has been delivering for over 100 years.
