For this issue we’ve dug through our Epoxyworks archive to put together a selection of all building articles. There are two reasons for doing this. For the last couple of months, we have been redesigning the PRO-SET® Epoxy product line. This has taken an incredible amount of work by almost everyone at Gougeon Brothers, especially those who write and produce Epoxyworks. In addition, since the beginning of the year, the chemists, lab technicians, and technical staff—the main writers of our articles—have been moving into their brand new quarters.
The culture of Gougeon Brothers, Inc. is building. This new addition, this test lab, and every product we sell is geared toward the building of things. It is a company founded by builders. One of our founders, Jan C. Gougeon, passed away on December 18, 2012, at the age of 67.
Few loved building things more than Jan Gougeon. Innovative boats and creative solutions flowed from him without the limitations of computers or drafting boards We’ll miss finding Jan in the boat shop dreaming up ingenious ways to go faster, building fantastic things—and always taking the time to share his love of building.
