This week we welcome Andrew Mullins and Andy Phillips on the show. Andrew is the president of VISIONknit, a leading technical knitting company based in Toronto, Canada. Andy Phillips is the president of Composite Creations. These companies have worked together to launch the world’s first 3D knitted canoe.

The VISIONknit 3D knit canoe provides lightweight, sustainable construction, at a competitive price point using a patent-pending hybrid Kevlar-polyester material, called KR18. 

This new technology has potential in many other composites industry applications as well and we'll be discussing these on the show. 

Along with the savings on production time, there is also a reduction in material waste by knitting pre-shaped parts, eliminating labor costs in a traditional layup process.
