About Lingrove

We believe one material can make a difference.

Lingrove is on a mission to make wood without trees. We an award-winning, early stage company already generating revenues. Our Ekoa materials are lighter than carbon fiber, stiffer than fiberglass and with the natural grain finish of wood. Our materials are used in sports equipment such as arrows and music instruments such as guitars. We expect Ekoa to replace wood in furniture and automotive sectors next. We’ve been covered in Fast Company, Wired, How-its-Made, and CNN.

We’re growing and looking to build our team with motivated individuals who share a goal of making high quality materials that address climate change.
