Amber Composites Material Specified for Major Automotive Build

02 October 2012

Amber Composites’ material has been specified for the primary structure of a major automotive build.

Amber explains prototype and homologation material has been supplied since 2011 and series production will begin in 2013. As part of the project, Adler Plastics, a leading Tier-1 automotive supplier, and Amber Composites have worked together to establish a supply chain able to supply mid-volume composite solutions to the automotive industry worldwide. The first vehicle, expected to be in production for at least five years, is viewed as a starting point for the companies.

“We are proud to supply material for one of the first mid-volume automotive projects where the entire chassis is built from carbon fibre”, said Andrew Dugmore, Sales Director for Amber Composites. “And working closely with a Tier 1 supplier like Adler helps us to develop the products and processes that the automotive industry requires.”
