As the saying goes "you have to recognize a problem before you can fix it". So in the not too distant past...1993 Mark Fellanto, a master automotive machinist and engine builder since 1974, successfully created new standards in engine remanufacturing. It seemed that innovative thinking, product excellence and customer service was at a stand still. So having recognized "the problem", Mark set out to fix it.
Realizing his own product was the answer, Promar Engines commenced operation out of a 5,000 square foot facility in Paterson, New Jersey. The business plan seemed simple. The demand for a higher quality product and better customer service was already there. Given Promar's goals within the industry, growth was inevitable. Promar's reputation for excellence helped staff the company with the best machinists and assemblers available.
Early 1995, now a major force in the remanufacturing industry, Promar becomes an influential member of the Production Engine Remanufacturers Association (PERA) and other trade organizations, while being the first remanufacturer to offer a three year unlimited mileage warranty.
Mid 1996 Promar enjoys further growth and increases its production and sales staff as well as its manufacturing floor to 13,500 square feet. Employing its own fleet of delivery vehicles, the company continues its commitment to quality and service. By keeping current with factory updates and using state of the art equipment, Promar utilizes research and development techniques to insure improved product quality.
1998 brought Promar recognition, first from the New Jersey Business News publication, citing the company as one of the state's top 25 fastest growing companies, and awards from city and state councils acknowledging the company's involvement in employment opportunities.
2001 Promar recognized a nationwide resurgence of classic car restoration. With representatives at many classic and custom shows, and through trophy sponsorship, Promar is able to educate the auto enthusiast how to apply Promar's 21st century technology into their special piece of automotive history.
In 2003, Mark Fellanto is voted onto the executive board of directors of the PERA. Further honors included the naming of Promar Engine as the "remanufacturer of the year", so it is no surprise that the PERA selected Mark Fellanto as their president of the PERA for the years 2006-2008.
With over thirty years experience in the automotive engine remanufacturing industry, Mark is rich in engineering know how. His list of accomplishments starts with a ten year position as General Manager, for a well known nationwide engine remanufacturing company. With knowledge and a dream, Mark started his own company Promar Engines in 1993. After four years, Promar Engines was recognized by the New Jersey Biz News Magazine as one of the top twenty-five businesses in NJ. In 2003 he was awarded PERA's engine rebuilder of the year. Mark has been on the board of the PERA (Production Engine Rebuilders Association) for eight years. He served his first three years as a board member and the next two years as PERA treasurer. Mark spent one year as vice president and then became president of the PERA from 2006-2008. He holds a seat on the Engine Repower Council (ERC) since 2007.
Mark is responsible for maintaining Promar's stability and growth. By developing key executives, assigning accountability, setting objectives and establishing priorities, he insures that Promar Engine will meet the company's mission statement: To provide the customer with a great product at a fair price, backed by strong guarantee.
