During one of my events, I met the owner of an Austrian fibre production company who happily announced that he has developed a new type of stone fibre πŸŒ‹πŸͺ¨. “Great, super,” I answered “then let’s build a yacht β›΅ out of it.” β€œYes, that’s what we should do!” was his replay. 😊

Just a few days later the parcel service πŸ“¦ delivered the first fibre roll and we immediately started laboratory work to test the use of this fibre for nautical applications.

Project FIPOFIX was born.
