Haskelite Manufacturing Corporation
The Haskell Manufacturing Company, founded by Henry Haskell and his partners in 1917, made compound molded plywood canoes. This technological innovation made it possible to successfully mold plywood in three dimensions. Haskell Manufacturing ceased boat production in 1922, an aviation company acquired the rights to the molding process and the product that Haskell named Haskelite. In 1922 a new company was founded under that name.
