METYX Expands Technical Fabrics Production

METYX reports the conclusion of a major deal with long-time partner Karl Mayer for the supply of new warp knitting production lines to provide 12,000 tonnes of additional glass and carbon fibre multiaxial fabric capacity.

This will increase production both in Turkey, further expanding its main factory at Manisa, as well as for additional overseas manufacturing facilities as part of a multinational strategic growth plan.  

“The recent growth of our technical fabrics division and the successful qualification programmes with key OEM customers globally producing composite wind generator blades has given us the confidence to place this multi-machinery order with Karl Mayer,” states Ugur Üstünel, Managing Partner of METYX Composites.

“We are very happy to be part of METYX Group’s growth and success in the composites industry," comments Karkheinz Liebrandt, CTO, Karl Mayer Technische Textilien. "We cherish our long term cooperation with them, which dates back to 1989, and we look forward to the years to come.”

The wind energy sector is a key market for METYX Group, which in recent years has made major capital investments as part of an ongoing long-term programme of key strategic investments in high-end production facilities for technical textiles and composites-related products to serve this sector and other key composites markets. This latest investment for its Composites Technical Fabrics division is to ensure that the group can continue to meet the needs of its major wind energy OEM customers both globally and locally, ahead of imminent national legislation changes in Turkey regarding the local supply of materials.
