Chomarat Increases its Production Capacity in Multiaxial Glass Fibre Reinforcements

17 February 2015

Chomarat is expanding its Tunisian plant in Grombalia and will be increasing its production capacity of multiaxial glass fibre reinforcements for the wind turbine market.

 

Chomarat explains that these investments come in response to a new contract to supply over 10,000 tonnes to the wind turbine sector. In 2014 Chomarat made similar improvements to its Taicang plant, China. The Group is now able to supply its multiaxial reinforcements across continents - Europe, Asia and the Americas.

 

“Increasing our production capacity and expanding our facilities is just the first step. We are going to pursue our development by offering a competitive range designed for the wind turbine sector and all other high-volume markets such as the transportation and marine industries,” said Raphael Pleynet, Head of Chomarat’s Composites Europe Business.

 

The aim of the Group is to build on its expansion and these latest investments will strengthen Chomarat’s market offering on an international scale. “Chomarat has always been among the leading players in the design and manufacture of glass reinforcements for the construction, marine and sports & leisure sectors. Our recent investments in China and Tunisia reflect our determination to gain ground in both carbon and glass composites,” said Michel Cognet, Managing Director of Chomarat Group.
