Airtech Advanced Materials Celebrates 45 Years in Composites

2018 marks the 45th anniversary of Airtech Advanced Materials Group, which the company will be celebrating during the year at all worldwide locations.

45 years ago, Airtech founder William ‘Bill’ Dahlgren, an engineer, started the company with four people in San Bernardino, California. The main goal of the business was to create a ‘one stop shop’ and to manufacture vacuum bagging and composite tooling materials for the fibreglass and graphite parts industry.

The company has grown to over 800 employees, manufacturing in five different locations – Huntington Beach, California, and Springfield, Tennessee in the US; Differdange in Luxembourg; Chadderton in the UK; and Tianjin, China.

Airtech is still privately owned and operated, and continues to innovate to meet the demands of its growing markets.

“From this humble beginning, we have grown into a world-class company and leaders in the field of composites,” says Airtech President and CEO Jeff Dahlgren. “A special ‘Thank You’ to our loyal employees, customers, and partners.”
