c-m-p is expanding its production facilities in Heinsberg-Oberbruch, Germany.
Due to renewed strong growth, the company says it will build its second production hall on the company site in 2017. The expansion offers sufficient storage areas and a laboratory for customer specific analyses, as well as space for a new impregnation facility with state-of-the-art technology.
By this means, the prepreg manufacturer is paving the way for further expansion. “This step does not just ensure our continued strong focus on customer needs, but also our reliable, short delivery times,” Management has said. “The worldwide demand for our ultra-light materials, made from the most modern high performance fibres, is constantly rising. The expansion of our facilities guarantees every customer top-quality products tailor-made for their needs, as well as customary short delivery periods in the future.”
A high-tech impregnation facility with a usable working width of two metres is one of the highlights of the expansion, supplementing the highly modern machinery used by the technology company. With this, c-m-p sets a new precedent in the manufacture of ultra-light stable-form materials, and opens up new fields of application for prepregs. Demand for wide prepregs is growing, in particular in the automotive industry. Short and flexible delivery times allow the application of these materials not just in small, but also in medium-sized lines.
In the course of the capacity expansion, c-m-p says it is also increasing the size of its sales team by two further employees. c-m-p stands for excellent and solution-oriented customer service, always open to special requests. This high standard in quality of service will be maintained by the staff increase.
