|Originally called Legnos Boat Building Company and founded by Peter Legnos (today known as LBI). Originally, the company specialized in the construction of Hollow Wood Sailboat Masts and Spars and related marine repair fabrication. In the early 80's, LBI began packaging and selling proprietary products that they had developed over the years. These products are marketed to contractors and trades people through a printed catalog, web page, and through a local retail store in Groton, Connecticut. They stock a vast array of composite materials: resins, fiberglass reinforcements, Nida-Core core materials and putties, tools and solvents.
