Total Composite Solutions (TCS) and Microtex Composites have extended their existing exclusive UK and Ireland agreement into the Americas. TCS will initially offer Microtex prepreg systems into this market, followed by its weaving product range.
“Building on the success of our solutions-based business model in the UK regions, we will be offering the same level of expertise to the American markets, along with local stock for fast efficient delivery," states Andrew Pointon, Managing Director of TCS. "Microtex's strong R&D culture and market leading products aligned with our service proposal and capability will add real value to the Americas.”
“This agreement is a natural progression in our strategic relationship with TCS to fill the American commercial gap," says Massimo Becagli, CEO of Microtex. "We are delighted with their success in the UK market and believe this exclusive arrangement seeks to strengthen our positions as world class providers.”
