ABOUT
THREE GENERATIONS OF ENGINEERING EXCELLENCE

In 1960, Stephen’s Welding started as a humble welding and machining shop in Washington state. Sixty years later, we’re now Gallatin Valley’s top destination for mechanical maintenance, repair, and sales of outdoor vehicles, equipment, and accessories.

 

Our rich and enduring history is testament to the Xcelerate difference. Through three generations, we’ve consistently provided above and beyond outdoor and marine services to residents of the Valley and surrounding areas.

Family owned and operated

BLAKE STEPHENS
Blake grew up shadowing his dad in the welding shop that’s today Xcelerate Outdoor Sports. Since childhood, his passion has always been the outdoors, opening the throttle to the machines that make them such a thrill to explore.

 

TOM THOMPSON
Tom is the steady motor mechanic behind Xcelerate’s marine business. As a kid, he took special interest in motors and the engineering behind how they spin. That interest evolved into a passion for marine engineering, motor mechanics and performance tuning.

 

Together, both Blake and Tom run Xcelerate Outdoor Sports as a passion project. By pouring in decades worth of experience and unbridled dedication to customer service, they’ve created what’s now the beacon of service excellence and professionalism in the Gallatin Valley and surrounding areas.
