Metyx has made a major, multi-phased investment in the core material and fabric kitting business which will form part of Metyx Composites Kitting Centre (MCKC), a new business unit at the company’s manufacturing centre in Manisa, Turkey.
According to Metyx, the initial investment in this business unit totals 1.4 million euro in machinery and equipment alone and it is the most recent in a series of company investments planned for 2012. MCKC is expected to be fully staffed and operational in April 2012.
“We are excited to add this service to our ever-expanding portfolio of offerings to make it even more comprehensive,” says Ugur Ustunel, Co-Director of Metyx Composites. “We feel that it is the best way to address our customers' needs in a cost-effective and timely manner. The Kitting Centre will be exclusively for wind energy and marine customers, as well as for other large industrial clients within Turkey and the European Union.
“We worked with some of the world’s most preeminent consultants in this area to ensure selection of the finest machinery and equipment available. We also put great emphasis on the implementation of quality assurance systems and traceability requirements for key industrial accounts. Additionally, the fulfilment process was of great concern to us in our planning. We are confident we can deliver products of the highest quality with quick turnaround to meet customer expectations,” Ustunel concludes.
