MacLean Quality Composites Facility to Transfer to Serrotta

MacLean Quality Composites’ Poway facility will become a part of NY based Serotta Competition Bicycles from January 2007.

The transition is the result of months of discussions between the collective management teams of MacLean Quality Composites (MQC) and Serotta. Ben Serotta and Dean Gestal, the respective CEO’s of the firms said, “Our companies have enjoyed an excellent working partnership of more than five years. At the core of the relationship has been our honest and open dialog, in which we’ve shared some of our long range strategic plans and concerns with each other.”

Serotta’s annexation of the Poway facility stems directly from these talks as Serotta sought to increase its potency in composites while MQC continues to both strengthen and streamline its operations by concentrating efforts on its two main facilities in Salt Lake, UT and Hangzhou, China.

As part of the agreement, Serotta will retain employment of the small dedicated Poway staff headed by lead engineer Mike Lopez. Under the agreement, Lopez will continue to provide engineering and consulting services to MQC and its customers on an ‘on-call’ basis.

Over the past two years, Serotta has brought a number of operations to in-house status and has been seeking the right path to do the same in composites. “We’re fanatical about controlling our own destiny, says Founder Ben Serotta, “and for us, the formula for success includes controlling as much of the R&D and manufacturing processes as possible so we’re absolutely thrilled to be adding the composites ‘A’ Team to the Serotta roster.”
