Testimonials

“Working with Steve Hassett and the team at CCTI has been a wonderful experience. They bring an unparalled creative and technical ingenuity to every aspect of a project and combine it with wide ranging knowledge of state-of-the-art and traditional materials and fabrication processes and the ability to execute custom solutions with an incredibly high level of quality and finish. And they do this over and over again, on time, and at a reasonable cost. To top it off, they are excellent communicators and a pleasure to work with. I will always use CCTI for my complex custom fabrication challenge.”

“I am pleased and proud to be professionally associated with Steve and Maureen Hassett. I have worked with Steve and Maureen for six-plus years, during which time I have observed their dedication to product quality and to their customers, as well as their commitment to employees and to economic growth within the community. Custom Composite Technologies has given uncompensated time and equipment to promote the mission of Maine’s North Star Alliance Initiative, an advanced workforce development program for the state’s boatbuilding, marine trade, and composite industries. ? The high level of integrity and business ethics that the Hassett’s have demonstrated over the years are a model for other small businesses. Their company is a credit to the State of Maine.”

“CCTI is a class act and an inventive operation. The parts they built for Scheherazade couldn’t have been more expertly constructed.”

“I have known Steve Hassett for over 25 years and whenever I need some outside composite work done at either of the two companies that I work with, he is the first one I call. Custom Composites Technologies built the tooling for a new racing shell at Resolute Racing Shells and the molds came out perfect. We are now up to our 15th boat from those molds and there are no signs of any issues. At Terrafugia, Inc., Steve is my go-to-guy. Custom Composites Technologies has helped with many things including some very complicated tooling for our outer and inner door panels of the Transition airplane. There have been no problems with the molded parts and they fit together perfectly every time. Steve is a great asset in the composite industry.”

“The canopy fabricated by CCTI for the Chewonki Foundation¹s solar-powered car (a collaboration with Kronosport), was an unqualified success. It was extremely lightweight, durable and able to carry the solar panels that powered the vehicle. This project demonstrates CCTI’s ability to flexibly address a range of renewable energy applications. I’m excited to work with Steve and his team in the future, possibly on a tidal energy project that I am coordinating for the town of Wiscasset.”

“Steve Hassett is our composite technology guru. When our school was awarded a $30,000 grant for composites education it required matching donations. Steve offered to help us meet that match by donating both his time and materials. He’s made himself available to the students once a month. Their projects range from snowboards and lacrosse sticks to wind turbine blades and electric cars, all of which present a variety of technological challenges. We save up our toughest questions for Steve and he always has an answer.”
