Cook Composites and Polymers (CCP) is to implement improvements to the company’s current technical centre during the first half of 2006 to effectively double its training facilities for the composites industry.

Paul Colonna, Vice President of the company’s Composites Division said that “CCP is doing everything we can to invest in our customers’ success. The entire industry is facing challenges with escalating raw material costs and supply issues. We felt one way to assist our customers in these trying times was to expand our training offering to focus specifically on helping improve their production processes and product quality.”

The modern training facility, encompassing training schools that offer both classroom and hands-on teaching, will double from its present size of 8,000 square feet to 16,000 square feet and include the latest in applications equipment, according to the company. A large stadium seating training room will allow seating for up to 60 people, while an additional conference room will be available for small group interaction.

“In the past year alone, CCP has reaffirmed our commitment to the industry through on-going training schools for our customers and distributors on products and processes; development of new MACT-compliant gel coats for the marine, casting, and sanitary markets; manufacturing process improvements and an all-encompassing quality control program. We’re also upgrading to the very latest colour-matching technology that will allow enhanced efficiency and repeatability, thus providing a more consistent product to the marketplace”, added Colonna.

CCP claims to be the world’s largest producer of polyester gel coats and, long with associated companies Cray Valley and Sartomer, the second largest producer of coatings resins. CCP’s distributor network is North America’s largest for composites and cast polymers.
