HISTORY OF MAGNERAK
A Message from the Inventor and Founder
A LOVE OF
FISHING SHARED BY MY DAD
My father used to take me fishing when I was a kid and I treasure my fond memories of peaceful and exciting times fishing with him. He passed away at 52 in 1998 when I was 25. That year was the beginning of my true passion for fishing. I found refuge, solitude, rehabilitation, peace, pleasure, excitement, joy, love and respect. For the next 20 years I’ve been hooked on fishing.
My dad could fix anything mechanical or electrical. His knowledge, capabilities, and wisdom was only matched by his humility, compassion, and integrity. He always encouraged me to build things as a kid growing up and we did many activities indoors and outdoors together.
My wife and I have been fishing with our kids since they were 1.5 and 2 years old. Now they are 19 and 10. We have great memories over the years fishing together and look forward to more great fishing ahead.
Thank you for everything Dad.
Our story began in June of 2012 in my garage when I invented MAGNERAK. From idea to sketches brought to life in my garage, designing, developing, testing and refining my idea to a physical and functional quality product has been the most satisfying endeavor I have ever undertaken. It has been an adventurous journey for MAGNERAK. We worked hard for over 5 years to perfect the durability and functionality of MAGNERAKs while preserving the beauty and simple elegance of the design.
PATENT PENDING & CROSS COUNTRY TESTING
TESTING IN TEXAS
From our 2013 cross country trip and 5+ years of testing in Texas, MAGNERAK has exceeded our expectations. I am happy to say that for over 5 years I have been enjoying the convenience and efficiency of going fishing with MAGNERAK and very excited to share with everyone.
5 PRODUCTION MAGNERAKS
In 2017 we funded the production and tooling of the molds for MAGNERAKS. We made 5 production units in September 2017 and we’ve been testing them for 10 months on 33 vehicles. During the process we tweaked the thickness of the racks, user friendliness of the velcro straps, etc. by usability testing, road testing and more FISHING!
