DIAB Australia has announced a new partnership agreement for the supply and distribution of its core materials in the Australian region with ATL Composites.
Through the partnership, the companies plan to strengthen their services to the composites industry, offering specialised core materials and services, including core kitting and engineering, to a wide range of composite manufacturers. The companies will increase local manufacturing capabilities in the region providing the availability of a wide variety of core types and finishes for advanced processing such as infusion, pre-preg and LRTM processing.
Nicholas Cossich, Managing Director of ATL Composites said;
We are extremely positive about the opportunity to work with DIAB Australia. DIAB are international leaders in structural core materials, and we have an established position as epoxy formulators and manufacturers of structural components for high performance structures. We see this alliance as key to strengthening both companies’ positions in our existing markets, and expanding into the emerging composite markets of architecture and civil engineering.
The partners will also offer advanced kitting of materials which include thermoforming and 5 axis machining. DIAB’s Composites Consulting Group will strengthen the offering with structural engineering based in Sydney and the Gold Coast region.
