Future Fibres first entered the composite rigging market in 1997, after the company's founder, Tom Hutchinson, decided there was a better way to terminate composite fibres and devised a way to continuously wind PBO fibre around two titanium thimbles at any required length. At that time aramid fibres were only considered suitable for aft rigging, as the then dominant fibre (Kevlar) had stretch characteristics that made it unsuitable for standing rigging. More than a decade on, Future Fibres' inherently safe and simple construction methods have revolutionised the rigging industry, allowing composite rigging to be used on every area of the boat.
