Epoxyworks then and now


In July of 1977, Gougeon Brothers Inc., the manufacturer of WEST SYSTEM Epoxy products, produced the first issue of The Boatbuilder, an 8-page black and white newsletter about building boats with WEST SYSTEM epoxy. The Boatbuilder gradually grew length, content and readership. In the autumn of 1992 we changed the name to Epoxyworks, switched to full-color printing and expanded the scope of the magazine to include all kind of epoxy projects. Epoxyworks has been published twice yearly ever since, and enjoys a readership of approximately 80,000.

In the late 1990s we launched the online edition of Epoxyworks, and we upgraded the site to WordPress in 2014.
