UMaine Kenway Composite Materials Laboratory Dedication on Friday

The Kenway Composite Materials Laboratory will be dedicated Friday, Nov. 15 at 3 p.m. at the Advanced Structures and Composites Center at the University of Maine.

The lab is being named for Kenway Corporation, a third-generation family business in Augusta, Maine. Founded in 1947, the company produces fiberglass pleasure boats and composite, industrial components.

Kenway Corporation, Kenneth Priest II, Michael Priest and Ian Kopp Families contributed a $100,000 endowment held in the University of Maine Foundation. The earnings support UMaine staff, students, research and scientific advancement of polymer matrix composites and related materials at the Advanced Structures and Composites Center.

Kenway Corporation is also a manufacturing partner with Advanced Infrastructure Technologies to produce Composite Arch Bridges, formerly known as Bridge-in-a-BackpackTM.

A tour and an infusion demonstration will be held following the dedication.
