Company Background
Since 1975, HRO Systems and Village Marine have been pioneering the method of producing potable water for the boating industry.

HRO Systems was founded in 1975 and was one of the first individual watermaking systems of it’s kind. Back when the only means of producing potable water aboard a boat was to either catch rain or use bulky and inefficient heat evaporation systems, HRO was a pioneer in creating the first line of small scale reverse osmosis desalination systems. Since then, the unique styling and distribution system used with HRO Systems has allowed uninhibited growth and development to continue producing highly regarded systems that withstand the test of time.

Village Marine is also a pioneer that started over 30 years ago. Specializing in systems that withstand the most challenging environments, Village Marine has obtained a grand reputation of reliability by producing rugged, straightforward systems that withstand the harshest environments. Village marine has been the exclusive provider of watermakers for disaster relief programs under NASA, FEMA, the Navy, and Army. Village Marine has received the prestigious Aegis Excellence Award as the only RO supplier to excel in quality and delivery, surpassing U.S. Navy expectations. After the first VMT reverse osmosis system was designed and installed on the U.S. Navy Submarine USS Dolphin in 1983, the systems had to undergo rigorous testing before additional installations could be approved. Passing every test, VMT’s plants worked flawlessly, 24/7 for 90 days straight. Together HRO and Village Marine bring you reliable and innovative watermakers that have the highest customer confidence and satisfaction rank in the industry.
