Hexcel held a dedication ceremony at its manufacturing facility in Salt Lake City to commission two new carbon fibreproduction lines.

The dedication ceremony was attended by state and local dignitaries including the Governor’s Office of Economic Development, the Economic Development Corporation of Utah, and West Valley City Economic Development Division.

According to Hexcel, the two new carbon fibreproduction lines are part of an on-going expansion at the Utah site, where Hexcel also manufactures carbon fibre/epoxy composite materials known as prepreg.  The expansion increases Hexcel’s global carbon fibreoutput to 16 million pounds of nameplate capacity.  They say thenew carbon fibrelines are part of an on-going multi-million dollar capacity expansion that will initially add up to 50 new jobs and by 2015 could add several hundred more new positions.

At the Dedication Ceremony Site Manager John Brock said  “I wish to thank all of our guests here today including the local and state officials that have provided so much support.  Above all I wish to thank our Hexcel employees for their unstinting commitment and dedication to the job of bringing these two new carbon fibrelines through construction and commissioning with such safety, efficiency and diligence.  I’m proud to be part of such a great team.”
