GMT Composites celebrates 25th anniversary

GMT Composites is looking for stories of its oldest spars as part of the company's silver anniversary celebration.

"For 25 years, GMT has shipped custom composite parts all over the world, rudders to the Netherlands, and rigs to the Americas, Europe and Asia. Our products have sailed around the world, flown around the globe and traveled to the depths of the oceans," said Jay Kiley, director of sales, in a statement.

GMT Composites of Bristol, R.I., designed and built the first carbon spar for a large cruising sailing yacht, built rudders for America's Cup and around-the-world race winners, and designed the new PowerFurl Boom for boats 45 feet to 100 feet. The company has also made jewelry for Tiffany's and furniture for Ralph Lauren, and worked to build parts for aircraft, submersibles and military projects.
