Independent Boat Builders Extends 3A Core Materials Contract

Independent Boat Builders (IBBI) has awarded 3A Composites AirexBaltekBanova a four-year contract extension as an IBBI preferred supplier to provide AIREX foams and BALTEK balsa core materials.

“The IBBI contract extension further demonstrates our ability to meet our customers’ continuous demand of lightweight composite solutions based on foam and balsa wood in the marine industry, while ensuring a strong performance thorough the application’s lifetime," says Roman Thomassin, CEO of 3A Composites Core Materials. "In particular, our latest innovations in high density PET foam cores bring improved performance and cost-advantages to this segment.”

IBBI is a US-based purchasing cooperative founded in 1989 by a group of independent, recreational boat builders.

“I think that our continued partnership with 3A Composites is a good fit for our members," comments Tom Broy, the President of IBBI. "Their product line-up gives our members many choices. We look forward to working together to help our members offer the best boats to the end consumer.”
