Reasons to Believe

Global Presence

We are there to support you with manufacturing in six countries from the US to Europe to China. We have a growing sales network ready to meet with you locally.

Composites expertise

We love to talk about fiber characteristics and discuss resin system recipes. We enjoy both the simple needs as much as the very complex cases.

Quality manufacturing

Pultrusion and pull-winding are our specialties; we believe these continuous manufacturing technologies offer many benefits for our customers such as cost-efficiencies, repeatable quality, volume manufacturing.

Our key applications and industries

There are many applications where composites can be used. Here are a few of our most common application and industry areas.   

Composite tubes

Countless possible uses for our standard and custom carbon fiber, fiberglass, and hybrid composite tubes.

Many advantages for so many applications

Composites are suitable for a wide range of applications in countless industries. Combined with our continuous pultrusion and pullwinding manufacturing technologies and our extensive knowledge of composite design and engineering you can benefit from composites in several ways.

Lightweight

With a specific gravity one-quarter that of steel and two-thirds that of aluminum, our lightweight carbon fiber, fiberglass and hybrid composites can help save weight across your applications.

High strength and stiffness

While lighter than steel and aluminum, you don’t need to sacrifice strength or stiffness.

Insulating

Fiberglass is a natural insulator. This helps save energy or even improve hand feel for broom handles. Composites have very low thermal expansion characteristics.

Chemical and corrosion resistant

We can tailor the composition of the composite to meet your specific environmental needs. Composites in general are corrosion resistant and do not rot.

Design flexibility

We work with to you consider how and where the needed composite product is used, this helps us identify possible design considerations and features we can incorporate which help you reduce part count or simplify your value chain.

Durability

We design our composites for long life cycles and low maintenance requirements. This adds value for your customers.
