Additionally, Lewit and his team are working with the Florida DOT to implement composite material into movable bridge decks, a huge need in the state. “We have a coalition of boat builders that are interested in producing bridge decks. There are a lot of people out of work and there are over 150,000 structurally deficient bridges in the U.S.,” says Lewit. “This could be a good area for the industry to move towards, particularly the boating industry. Especially since I don’t see the marine market going back to where it was and the boat industry is well suited to bridge deck technology.” While the boat and aerospace industry remain somewhat stagnate in Florida, Structural Composite continues to move forward into a rich and rewarding new realm for composite innovation, using its new Prisma SST technology to lower weight and cost.
