Tomasz (Thomas) Stachura is the man responsible for Santi and the current Santi Diving success. He began working in the garment production industry just after finishing school and has been doing it ever since. His experiences as an avid motorcyclist led him to produce comfortable and warm leather MC gear through the garments line at Santi. Once gaining an interest in diving he applied the same passion in designing suits that had to be snug yet not restrictive.

Santi later moved onto manufacturing arctic and cold weather gear for explorers and mountain climbers, included clothing and sleeping bags. While mass production runs were never Tomasz’s ultimate goal, the company grew and now employs over 120 people. Around 2001, Tomasz found himself getting cold in his new dry suit and decided to do something about it. Success with his clothing line for the North Sea Oil Riggers prompted him to apply his expertise to dry suit undergarments.

The first prototype for the EXTREME 400 JUMPSUIT was born. Right away he noticed that the new Jumpsuit was much warmer then anything he had tried previously. Throughout the research and development phase many of his dive partners tried out the undersuits and their friends did the same. With a vast pool of divers, Tomasz was willing to listen to their input about the EXTREME 400 JUMPSUIT and it has since become the leading product in new the Santi Diving division.

By 2004, he was persuaded by Robert Klein (respected Polish cave diver and instructor) to follow the success of the jumpsuit line by initiating development of the new Dry Suit production. From the beginning parameters were set for durability and fit with a full range of motion, along with the most important feature; ONE MUST STAY DRY.

The testing was conducted by leading Polish and European divers and their feedback was pivotal in the final products.  This approach of diver-manufacturer interaction has proven invaluable to the Santi Diving success in the market place. The development of Santi Dry Suits took years of time and substantial investments to become the BEST DRY SUIT available.
