With plans to expand its worldwide activities in the field of Advanced Materials, Textechno, Germany, has formed a strategic partnership with AMAC.
The demand for lightweight materials, so-called composites with carbon, glass or other reinforcements, is growing rapidly across industries, especially in the Automotive sector. With the objective to expand in this global growth market, Textechno formed a strategic partnership with AMAC as of 15th September 2015. AMAC will, with immediate effect, support and advise Textechno with its strategic sales and marketing activities.
Textechno says the company's aim is now to further develop and strengthen its global business activities and strategic position in the area of ??Advanced Materials (glass, carbon and polymer fibre) in the industrial sectors aerospace, automotive, marine, building and construction, energy, electrical/electronics, consumer goods and sporting goods.
Dr. Ulrich Mörschel, CEO of Textechno says, ‘We are looking forward to working with Dr. Effing and to benefit from his long-term industry experience with multinationals such as DuPont, Owens Corning, Johns Manville or DSM. We believe that this cooperation will show good results, especially when collaborating with growing composites markets like Asia or the US.’
Dr. Effing, CEO of AMAC confirms, ‘I am very pleased to support and advise Textechno with the expansion of their global activities in the rapidly growing lightweight sector. I am convinced, that with its customised and innovative precision testing systems, Textechno will make an outstanding contribution here.
