Opening the doors to a small shop on June 9, 1980, in Bristol, Rhode Island, Eric Hall and Phil Garland founded Hall Spars & Rigging with a staff of four mast makers and a receptionist. 33 years on they have grown to have high-performance spar and rigging factories in the US, Holland and New Zealand.

Hall pioneered the combination of autoclave curing and seamless carbon construction. Milestones include expansion into multiple state-of-the-art factories on three continents, a hand in three America's Cup victories, a DAME Innovation Award for Seamless Carbon Rigging with an airfoil shape, development and patent of the award-winning AutoLock halyard lock, manufacture of Advanced Design Cross Flow tidal turbines and construction of the tallest carbon mast built in the US, at 67.5m.

In response to the growing demand for Hall's technology and expertise, 2013 brought the formation of Hall Composites, the non-marine division of Hall Spars, responsible for prototype design, development and production for the energy, aerospace, architectural and defense industries.

Marking the anniversary Hall has updated its online presence with an updated design, more information and easy-to-navigate features.
