There’s a fine line between genius and insanity
Meet the mad scientists behind EMC2 Quantum Technology
EMC2 began when University of South Carolina grads (and former roommates) Jon Boswell and Brad Martin were cleaning up a secondhand 17-foot day boat. The paint on the boat was peeling, dirty, and chalky, and the craft needed some serious TLC to get back in the water. The duo wasn’t satisfied with their available paint options, and Martin, already familiar with current aerospace coatings, started tinkering in his garage to combine the aerospace technology with marine paint. The finished product of his tinkerings—now EMC2’s signature Quantum technology—inspired Boswell and Martin to launch a company to meet the need for better marine coatings. They started EMC2 while both working other full-time jobs, and sunk $1,500 and a whole lot of nights, weekends, and lunch breaks into getting it off the ground. After graduating from Charleston, S.C.’s Harbor Accelerator Program, they teamed up with industry vets Steve Schultz and Jim Ewing to produce and distribute the Quantum line.
