SHD Composite Materials Expands into US

11 September 2018

UK firm SHD Composite Materials has formed a new company in the US.

SHD Composite Materials Inc, a manufacturing and distribution site, will be based in the Charlotte area in North Carolina. It will primarily support the company's growing business in North America, whilst continuing to support its growing global reach. The fourth SHD fabric prepreg line has been commissioned in the UK and will be shipped out to the US in the fourth quarter of 2018, with on-site manufacturing commencing early 2019.

Jamie Keogh will become CEO of the US operation in October 2018 to establish the foothold in North America.

SHD currently offers its full range of composite prepreg materials from the UK globally. Growing its manufacturing facilities offers further capacity for UK clients. Coupled with production facilities in the UK and Slovenia, an additional manufacturing facility in the US will offer strength, stability and efficiency to SHD customers around the globe.
