TenCate Reveals UK Expansion Plans

TenCate Advanced Composites has announced plans for the growth and expansion of equipment and facilities at their manufacturing facility in Nottingham as part of their growth strategy.

The UK plant will be a centre of excellence for thermoset chemistry systems serving the EMEA region. The large investment will bring additional capability and capacity for fabric and UD based products, which are ideally suited to serving existing markets like Formula 1 Motorsport, automotive and industrial markets.

Following the acquisition of Amber Composites in January 2013, the company has set out the strategies and plans that will support growth within its target markets and build on a strong range of products with proven capability.

Nick Tiffin, Sales and Marketing Director of TenCate Advanced Composites EMEA said;

This is very exciting time for the Langley Mill business which has been producing composite materials for over 25 years. Our strategy and plans to grow the business clearly demonstrate our long term commitment to the market and we look forward to being able to service existing and new customers with both prepreg and honeycomb products in the coming years.

The UK facility of TenCate Advanced Composites and the additional increase of both capacity and capability is scheduled to be ready mid 2015.
