FinCo began in 1990 as a small boat repair shop in Newport Beach, California. The company was founded by
co-owners Steve Brown and Jean Wong, who still serve as FinCo's senior management team. They eventually
expanded their menu of services to include the production and renovation of maritime fiberglass products,
including sailboat hulls, decks, keels, rudders, and a variety of related components. Their expanding
list of clients ranged from local boat owners and yacht brokers to major military contracting firms,
including one that hired FinCo to build the fiberglass deck structure for a 47-foot U.S. Navy patrol
When FinCo outgrew its Newport Beach facility in 1995, the company moved
to its current location in Santa Ana. While maintaining its core maritime services, FinCo expanded into
new realms of fiberglass products and technology aimed at a variety of business sectors, including
building construction, trucking, chemicals, and the entertainment industry.
FinCo is also a strategic partner of The Foss Company, a long-time industry leader in rudder
construction. The Foss Company has been creating its famous Foss Foam rudders since 1968.
