The Rhode Island Composites Alliance, a newly formed partnership of companies and stakeholders focused on growing the composites industry in Rhode Island, has received $175,000 in funding from the Rhode Island Foundation and the van Beuren Charitable Foundation. The announcement was made at a press conference organized by RIMTA held on the opening morning of the Providence Boat Show.
RIMTA’s February News features Clear Carbon & Components and Matt Dunham, a founding member of the Rhode Island Composites Alliance (RICA). The composite components produced by this Bristol company are used in a wide array of businesses: from marine to medical, architecture, renewable energy, underwater industrial marine, transportation, military, and even the music industry. It's not hard to be impressed that this company, also known as C3, has forged sales channels into all these industries. But the web of applications the company's products are used in has its roots in a single industry. It all started with boat building.
