Global specialists in the development and distribution of process materials for the advanced composite industry, Aerovac Systems Ltd, will be putting on their biggest show to date at JEC stand G40/H31 in the Paris Expo hall.
For the first time at JEC, Aerovac will be exhibiting with both sister companies Aerovac Systems France and California based Richmond Aircraft Products to present a worldwide, sole-source supply solution for composite processing materials.
Together, the three companies offer an unrivalled global distribution proposition to composite customers in the aerospace, automotive, marine, wind power and electronics markets, and as such they will be showcasing an extended range of products and services covering both consumable materials and reusable vacuum bagging technology.
In addition, Aerovac and Richmond have chosen JEC to turn the spotlight on a number of significant product developments including reusable resin infusion technology, a dedicated resin infusion product range, heat sealed vacuum bags, a new release film and sealant tape.
Each company will be represented at senior level in Paris in April, for what is seen as the platform from which the triumvirate will confirm a clear global market-leader position for the group.
