U.K. plant expansion scheduled for completion in 2015.
TenCate Advanced Composites, a leading global composite materials company based in Nijverdal, the Netherlands, announced its plan for the growth and expansion of equipment and facilities at its manufacturing facility in Langley Mill, England.
The U.K. plant will be a center of excellence for thermoset chemistry systems serving the EMEA region and will bring additional capability and capacity for fabric and UD based products, which are suited for existing markets like the automotive and industrial markets.
Scheduled for completion in mid-2015, the upgrade will also emphasize TenCate customer commitment to support markets such as space, satellites, radomes and select aerospace high temperature end-user applications. Following the acquisition of Amber Composites in January 2013, the company has established strategies that will support growth within its target markets and build on a strong portfolio of legacy products with proven capability. This includes the heritage TenCate AmberTool® HX-series of tooling prepregs and pre-impregnated materials for the high performance automobile markets.
