In 2012 Ron Peterson realized a need for step system that would offer fisherman and boat enthusiasts a safe way to enter and exit their boat. Based out of Mt. Pleasant, Texas Ron and his wife Carol started RC Marine Products and developed the Easy Step System. In 2014 As the business began to grow, Ron reached out to Regal Machine MFG in Tyler, Texas to manufacture his steps. This relationship would become a key part of the future of Easy Step System. Regal is a full-service production fabrication and machining facility equipped with modern CNC equipment.
Regal’s diverse equipment list provides services to many different industries including telecom, railroad, DOT, medical, oil & gas, large truck, and many other OEM’s. Regal Machine MFG was started in 1989 by Terry Warren, an experienced tool and die maker, and operations are currently overseen by his son, Blake Warren. In 2019 as Ron was entering retirement Easy Step System was purchased by Blake and Kaci Warren to provide a seamless transition due to the relationship between the two companies.
Hi, my name is Blake Warren, and I have been married to Kaci for 16 years. Kaci and I are both lifelong residents of East Texas and currently live on Lake Hawkins just north of Tyler, Texas. We have three awesome kids Makena, Jordyn, and Brody who all love the lake. When we are not on the water, we are chasing our kiddos around at athletic complexes playing volleyball, basketball, baseball, softball, and football.
I currently serve as a trustee for the Hawkins ISD School Board. Kaci serves on the board for the Love Lake Hawkins Association and the board for the Hawkins FFA Ag Backer’s. We are both very involved with our kids’ activities and love our Lake Hawkins community. We are excited about the future of Easy Step System and look forward to growing the business!
My name is Ryan Gattis, and I am the sales rep here at Easy Step. I am a 2014 graduate of McMurry University in Abilene, Texas. While at McMurry, I was part of the McMurry University Bass Club. We fished in tournaments all around Texas and even fished in the 2014 Boat U.S. Collegiate Championship on Pickwick Lake in Florence, Alabama.
After graduating from McMurry, I taught Math at Hawkins High School for 5 years. Upon the conclusion of my 5th year of teaching, I decided to join the team here at Easy Step. Even as a young fisherman, I know the importance of being able to enter and exit your boat safely. I have a passion for helping others, and I love that I can do that here at Easy Step.
I currently live in Hawkins, Texas, with my wife Hali, my 2 dogs Maverick and Goose, and my newborn son, Corbin! We love to be outdoors. Whether it’s camping, fishing, golfing, or anything that involves being outside, we are all about it.
