3A Composites Further Expands its Balsa Plantations

15 January 2013

With its latest purchase of land, 3A Composites increases its balsa plantation base by 20% and now owns almost 10.000 hectares in Ecuador.

This increase in plantation capacity, combined with investments in machinery, aims to strengthen 3A’s global leadership in the balsa core materials business. The company’s global customers will profit from the unique guarantee that they will never run out of FSC certified balsa.

3A explains that Balsa is a core material of choice for many sandwich applications ranging from wind rotor blades to marine as well as construction applications. 3A says it is perfectly positioned to offer a long-term and sustainable supply of this natural product. 3A owns the entire product cycle from seedling to finished core material and can guarantee long term supply volumes as well as unrivalled process and quality controls, resulting in the BALTEK SBC.
