History and General Information

In the mid 1970's Gulf States Paper and Rockwell International formed a consortium to knit biodegradable erosion control fabric. By the late 1970's they had converted all the equipment pioneering knitted fiberglass reinforcement fabrics as an improvement over woven roving. The registered name COFAB® is still used today to identify the product. In the late 1980's Gulf States sold the company to Blydensetin-Willink, an international Dutch firm which continued with the same type products as Composite Reinforcements, Inc. In January 1990, Mr. Ken Collins bought the company from Blydenstein-Willink, upgraded the equipment, and expanded the product line. He continues to operate the company as CollinsCraft Composites Group. CollinsCraft's manufacturing facility is in Westminster, South Carolina, located in the extreme northwest corner of the state at the foot of the Blue Ridge Mountains.
