Forespar® Launches it's 50th Anniversary Celebration at Strictly Sail Richmond!

Published: Wednesday, April 6, 2016

Turning 50 is a big event for anyone or anything. But for a business to turn 50, in this day and
age, is certainly cause for celebration. Forespar® Products Corp. is proud to announce they have
reached that very special 50th Anniversary milestone and are prepared to launch a year-long

In April 1966, with modest beginnings, Robert Foresman founded Forespar® Products
Corporation by unveiling the company's first telescoping whisker pole designed on the family
dining room table, and manufactured in the family garage. Throughout 2016 Forespar would
like to invite their valued customers and partners along for the celebratory ride as they
commemorate this unique milestone with Special Events including: Parties, Contests, Awards,
Flashbacks, News Updates, Dealer Spotlights and a few surprises along the way.
They'll kick off the year-long fun with a cocktail party, rum tasting and Champaign toast in their
booth #K5 in the Craneway Pavilion at Strictly Sail Richmond this Friday evening April 8th from
6-8pm. Anyone in attendance is welcome!

Early Days:
The Company motto - "Marine Products That Perform" - explicitly defines Forespar's
perspective. From the beginning, Forespar Products Corp. gained invaluable experience making
boating and commercial lightweight marine products that performed well and resisted
corrosion. The telescoping whisker pole designed for sailboats was our first offering and now
hundreds of products and many years later, Forespar is a large and diversified supplier of sailing
and power boating products to the world market.

Maintaining the highest quality standards, we produce a steady stream of innovative products
incorporating lightweight, space-age materials including: The award-winning Marelon®
plumbing system, a new line of "93" Series integrated thru-the-hull valves, an "Ultra" Series
spinnaker and whisker pole end fitting, a line of carbon fiber structures for tiller extensions,
spinnaker poles, whisker poles, wing spars, and radar spars, and our all-new PerformanceCare+
lineup of maintenance care products engineered to perform to the highest standards our
customers expect.

Growth & Change:
These are exciting times at Forespar. 95% of the products are manufactured at the company
headquarters and plant in Rancho Santa Margarita, CA. Alive, adaptive and growing today,
Forespar continues to provide marine products focused on performance. Led today by Scott
Foresman, our well-trained second-generation group of professionals is poised to drive Forespar
into the next 50 years through our core strengths of hard work, ingenuity, leadership and our
founder's emphasis on products that perform and quality customer care.

This fantastic journey would not have been possible without the support of our many industry
friends and loyal customers. We look forward to a bright future and a long, rewarding
relationship with each of one of you in the coming years ...
~ Scott Foresman, Forespar® President & COO
