Gurit Composite Technologies is a new collaboration of four market-leading composites companies - SP, IMS, Stesalit, Gurit Suprem – and is being launched at JEC this year.
By uniting the capabilities of each company, Gurit Composite Technologies is planning to provide an unrivalled and comprehensive range of products and technologies to customers, specifically tailored to key markets. Each of the four companies will continue to focus on its own market areas, but through this collaboration can now offer even more complete solutions, drawing on the group’s combined skill base and product range which is wider than any other in today’s composite industry.
Gurit Composite Technologies will launch at JEC, with all member companies available to discuss and demonstrate their full range of composite capabilities within the aerospace, automotive, civil engineering, marine, oil and gas, wind energy and winter sports markets. The combined product range includes: thermoset and thermoplastic prepregs, extruded thermoplastic sheets, pultruded plates and rods, pressed laminates, liquid resins, adhesives, surfacing systems, reinforcement fabrics, structural engineering design and technical support services.
Paul Rudling, CEO of Gurit Composite Technologies comments, “ We are delighted to be exhibiting in this capacity at JEC and the event is the culmination of a lot of hard work from all our partners. Since we decided to form Gurit Composite Technologies at the end of 2002, we have created a solid network of composite specialists that brings together all of our experience. This means we can now provide customers with an ever broader range of composite technology solutions now and into the future”.
