Who We Are
FFI Automation is an automation supplier of perfect fit solutions for consumer products in the marine industry.
autobimini was developed by FFI Automation. Founded in 2004, FFI Automation provides perfect fit solutions for consumer automation products primarily in the marine industry. Over the last decade, FFI Automation has supplied over 75,000 automatic boat lift systems. You will find FFI Automation products operating near water all over the United States and Canada. FFI Automation automatic boat lift products were adapted to develop autobimini as a perfect fit solution. We use similar technology in autobimini that has been proven over many years from our existing designs.
autobimini was developed on Pipe Lake in Comstock, WI. There is a bridge between Pipe Lake and North Pipe Lake. The shallow water under the low bridge connects the two lakes allowing passage by boat. In order to boat under the bridge, it requires the bimini to be taken down and then put back up. After accomplishing this task manually multiple times with much frustration, it became clear there had to be a better way. After communicating with many people it became obvious that an automatic bimini was a desired solution. Since we supplied electromechanical systems for boat lifts to go up and down automatically, we engineered a system for bimini tops to go up and down automatically.
We hope you enjoy autobimini. You will use your bimini more easily, with more enjoyment and more often after installing autobimini.
We solve first world problems.
