In the early sixties, an
named Chuck Foss developed several polyurethane foam systems
useful for a variety of purposes, including
the production of surfboards. His new firm, The
Foss Company, soon
became one of
the top U.S.
of foam surfboard
blanks, which he sold under the name of "Foss Foam."
in the sixties, one of his Foss Foam systems used to make surfboard
skags was found to be a excellent material for making sailboat rudders.
It was not long before The Foss Company was supplying rudders to
of the boat builders in Southern California. In addition to sailboat
rudders, the company used a very light foam system to fill dock pontoons,
barges, buoys and most anything else that needed to float.
the eighties and nineties, the company specialized in fiberglass
and foam composites. High performance sailboards and paddleboards
were some of the products produced. With
an extensive inventory of rudder molds, the company now specializes
in supplying sailboat
owners and boat repair yards with replacement rudders.
In recent years, The
Foss Company has formed a strategic partnership with FinCo
Fabrication, a major fiberglass manufacturing firm
based in Santa Ana, California. This partnership will assure that
Company's long tradition of quality products and service will continue
for years to come.
