To meet growing OEM demand for their Superlite composite, Azdel is expanding its U.S.-based global supply facility in Lynchburg to add 7,000 tons to the company’s current annual capacity and bring its total to more than 25,000 tons.

According to James Forden, president, Azdel, Inc., “”This investment reflects the strong interest in Azdel Superlite composite by the automotive industry and the global translatability of the application programs it’s supporting. This step-increase in capacity will help further ensure product supply, as well as confirm our ongoing commitment to serve this sector.””

The composite was recently chosen by Lear Corp. for the automotive interior integration program for the Ford GT performance vehicle. Azdel Superlite was specified for the headliner, bulkhead cover, door panels, pillar trims, center console, and instrument panel. Currently in limited production, the Ford GT performance vehicle is scheduled to go into regular production in spring 2004.
