Hexcel and Groupe Gazechim Composites have joined forces to provide customised kitting services for advanced composite materials sold to aerospace and defence customers and for high-performance industrial applications.

The joint venture, named HexCut Services, will provide pan-European kitting services that will include Hexcel’s carbon fibre prepreg and other composite materials such as adhesives and fabrics for aerospace, defence and industrial applications. Pre-cut kits save customers time and investment, reduce inventory and minimise material losses through scrap reduction.

Gazechim’s existing kitting plant in Maulévrier, France, will be the initial hub for providing pre-cut kits to customers as well as central services in the future to a network of local kitting facilities in Europe.

Gazechim, an official Hexcel distributor for more than 20 years, will own a majority share of the joint venture.

“This is a great opportunity for us to join together with Gazechim, a trusted and well-established partner, to offer our leading advanced composite products to customers in a way that helps them become more productive and profitable,” states Thierry Merlot, Hexcel President – Aerospace, Europe, MEA and Asia/Pacific.

“This project marks a new era between Hexcel and Gazechim and consolidates our long-term partnership of almost 20 years,” notes Jean Guittard, Chairman of Gazechim.
