SineWaves Inc was started when engineer Matthew Wright pulled together 4 friends to invest in his idea for a new engine / generator concept he been sketching.
Along with filing a Provisional Patent the team decided to build a proof of concept engine to help mature the concept. Within a year Matt Wright, Curt Mohney, and Randy McGee, along with friends / partners Bryce Kroha & Brian Nese had designed, procured and fabricated the worlds first CATRE.
Curt and Matt went to Kettering University (formerly GMI) together & later worked together at Saleen in Irvine California where they met Randy and together had great success designing and building performance sports cars.
A history of remarkable successes already exists between this team of friends and there is only more to come.
