Cristex New UK Agent for Eurocarbon

05 September 2008

Eurocarbon BV of Sittard NL ha appointed Cristex Ltd, Accrington, as their new UK agent.

“Since 1992 we have had a very successful relationship with David Carlton of Sedace Ltd” said Arnold Voskamp, MD of Eurocarbon. “David advised us that he wanted to retire and we took time to search out the right company to represent us for the sales of woven tapes, braids and preforms in the UK. Cristex has excellent introductions into the aerospace, automotive, marine and insulation markets and we look forward to increasing UK market penetration.

“The Eurocarbon product range dovetails very well into our existing product portfolio”, says Bruce Craig, MD of Cristex Ltd. “The prospects for Eurocarbon braided preforms in lightweight vehicle structures are very exciting and compliments our current push in resin infusion technology”.

“It’s been a long association working with Eurocarbon”, said David Carlton. “Way back in 1973, I sold Courtaulds Grafil carbon fibre to them. Then from 1992 I worked for them. Eurocarbon and Cristex will work well together and I wish them every success.”
