Hexagon Composites wholly-owned subsidiary Hexagon Ragasco has been awarded several new orders for delivery of composite LPG cylinders to markets outside Europe.
Hexagon Ragasco explains that, to further expand it has been working on developing selected markets in Africa, Asia, Central and South America as well as in the Middle East.
"In these markets, LPG is a primary energy source for many households, and their increased focus on safety and user-friendliness has made our composite cylinders the preferred choice for some leading gas distributors" says Frédéric Gaussen, Global Sales and Marketing Director. "We believe these regions offer significant potential and foresee that they will drive our growth in the coming years".
According to confidentiality agreement with the customers, Hexagon Composites will not announce the names of the companies.
Hexagon Composites is a publicly listed company with its head office in Aalesund, Norway. The Group develops and supplies composite cylinders for storage and transport of gases under pressure and multiaxial composite reinforcements.
