SAFE Boats International - Soul of the Machine
The Man Behind the Designs
Soul of the Machine tells the story of designers and engineers that work to bring products with global impact to life. SAFE Boats International (SAFE) is a KETIV customer and this episode features Jon Godbolt, lead designer at SAFE International. Jon has worked his way up through the ranks, from sweeping floors to handling some of the company’s most ambitious design projects. Jon helps build products that save lives and protect and serve the United States.
“We build products that help save lives, they help protect and serve our country. We provide boats for the US Military, Coast Guard, Navy, local and state police departments.”
Engineers are known for problem solving and creating valuable products, but they find fulfilment and motivation in different places. For Jon, feeling like he’s building something unique and special is what makes going to work every day enjoyable. Jon explains, “We build products that help save lives, they help protect and serve our country. We provide boats for the US Military, Coast Guard, Navy, local and state police departments.”
Jon loves to collaborate with his team and looks forward to learning and improving the SAFE design and production processes every day. He says, “I think what makes a good engineer is somebody that can look at things from as many angles as possible.” This insight into the design process is what has made SAFE so successful and we look forward to seeing what the company has in store for the future.
