Latest news from the Labs:
  1. Rock West has one of the most extensive offerings of prepreg on the market - over 25 material options. Even better, you can purchase by the linear yard - no minimum quantities! Of course, the more you buy, the better the price so feel free to pick up a whole roll.

Highlighting Entries from our Quaranvent Design Competition #1

He did not have enough room in the back of his truck for all of his dogs, and he needed something strong enough to hold their weight without collapsing. This bunk bed will fit any crew cab ford. With a lot of dog lovers and owners on our team, this was

One of our engineers, Brian, was spending hours weeding and picking his strawberry patch. As agricultural labor will tend to do, the gardening was hurting his back and knees​.
