MARKOS to Open New Production Hall Dedicated to Vacuum Bag Moulding

21 May 2013

At the beginning of 2013, the Shareholders and MARKOS Board of Directors decided to start building another production facility in Poland.

MARKOS say the decision resulted from an analysis of global composites market trends and was a response to growing customer needs for large-size laminate products.

The production area will be over 2000 sqm and another over 900 sqm for storing, offices and social rooms.

The new hall is dedicated to fibre reinforced composites in vacuum bag moulding technology. In the first stage, casing of wind turbines will be produced.

In accordance with company environment policy, the facility will be equipped with advanced extraction systems for the reduction of volatile organic compounds (mainly styrene) into the atmosphere.

Expected start date of the production is August 2013.
