In 1984, Mike Pelissier and Jerry Peck had a dream— design the best underwater communication system on the market and become a worldwide brand. Without financial backing they rolled up their sleeves, divided the work and got busy. For the first year-and-a-half their wives worked regular jobs to support their families while the guys hand-crafted their product line in their home garage, designing, assembling and even hand painting each and every product. With Jerry’s engineering design background and Mike’s Navy Diver and Sales experience, the two partners were destined for success.
As the company grew Mike and Jerry’s mission was to always take care of the customer and provide the highest quality underwater communications at fair price. In very little time, OTS became a trusted brand in the industry and a world-renowned leader for underwater communications. Militaries, professional dive teams, recreational divers, as well as Film & T.V. productions around the world have made OTS the choice for their underwater communication needs. In 1991 Ocean Technology Systems further built their credibility as leaders in the market winning a National Emmy Award for pioneering the use of underwater audio being recorded to a camera for T.V. in a segment with ESPN.
With over 30 years in the SCUBA industry OTS has continued to grow and thrive creating new products and fulfilling the needs of market demands. From humble beginnings in a garage to over 65 employees, OTS prides themselves on being a place employees call home and can make a difference in the world. The OTS product line covers everything state-of-the-art wireless underwater and hardwire communications as well as full face masks.
It has been the pleasure of OTS to faithfully serve their customers with honesty and integrity and the entire team looks forward to continuing to do so for many years to come.
