Question to the experts


I used a Fibro a pic of which is posted in the Vintage gear fora. Before Mr. Plante admitted me to this wonderful site, I was under the impression that the mask we know as the "Jacques Plante" mask was all the company made.
As I comb through here, I certainly am learning that they made more. My question is which masks did the company make and did they also make custom ones?

Your question needs to be answered with different posts:

The story of Fibrosport begins here, with custom-molded masks:

Then came production masks (1971?), and more custom-molded masks in evolving styles, until 1976 or so.

It's unclear when the company folded, but it appears that they stopped making fiberglass masks for ice hockey, and converted for the last period of its existence to the fabrication of junior model plastic street hockey masks with large backplates.

The company did not become Fibrotek or Fibretek, nor Fibrobec - whatever these companies are, they are not the former Fibrosport company as far as I have learned, though there was or is a company called Fibrobec that made fiberglass boxes for pick-up trucks.

Anyone find anything out about Bernard Raymond (the manager of fibrosport?) Is he still around?
