METYX Composites Doubles Production Site in Turkey

13 September 2016

METYX Composites is in the process of doubling its production facilities at its main manufacturing centre in Manisa, Turkey.

METYX explains that land and buildings, adjacent to the existing factory in the Manisa Industrial Zone, became available earlier this year, which Telateks recently acquired. The existing factory is being linked to the newly acquired site, which combined provides a total of 2.3 hectares (23,000 sq.m) of production and warehousing space. The expanded site is almost twice the size of the current factory, providing METYX with the space to not only double weaving capacity for glass and carbon fibre multiaxial fabrics, but to also add more tooling and kitting capacity.

According to METYX the new site is planned to be fully operational later this year, and the expanded factory will also include new CNC machining centres for composite plug and mould making. To meet increasing demand, especially from the wind energy sector locally, the existing kitting services at Manisa are also being further expanded; at both Manisa and the METYX Composites factory in Hungary, supplying customers with 'make to order' kits for core material, glass and carbon fibre reinforcements and vacuum consumables, not only for wind energy, but also for marine, automotive, and other industrial applications.

METYX adds that additional new warehousing facilities are also being constructed at Manisa to further improve stock holding and distribution services from the main production site, and also supplies a growing number of METYX Composites export customers. This latest investment in its expansion is part of an ongoing five-year programme of key strategic investments in high-end production facilities for technical textiles and composites-related products made by Telateks since 2011, when construction of the original factory in Manisa started.
