Consistent with this name change, Park's advanced composite materials product line will now be sold under the Nelcote trade name.

This name change is also intended to signify that we are placing the full weight of Park Electrochemical Corp. and its resources into the development of our Nelcote advanced composite materials product line and business principally for aerospace applications. Our Nelcote product line and business are now central and integral parts of our global Advanced Material business.""
