29 Nov CASE STUDY: Composites Energy Technologies
Eric Goetz is no stranger to innovation and pushing the limits of technology. He began his career in 1975 building boats at his own company, Goetz Custom Sailboats. From the start, he was constantly experimenting with new ways to build stronger, lighter, and faster boats—including 10 America’s Cup challengers and defenders.
However, as was the case for many companies, the economic downturn of 2008 posed difficult challenges for Goetz Custom Sailboats, and it eventually ceased operations. But its story of innovation was far from over. Eric Goetz emerged from the recession to launch the rapidly growing Composite Energy Technologies business in 2010.
