The ceremony will take place on the international composites event, JEC Asia, November 1-3, 2017 - COEX Center, Seoul, South Korea

During the first JEC Asia International Composites event in Seoul, South Korea, 12 companies will be rewarded in several major application sectors: Aeronautics, Automotive, Construction, Marine, Racing car, Railway, Transportation, Wind Energy and Sports & Leisure.

Like the rest of the world, the Asia-Pacific region is seeing major developments in carbon-SMC materials, lighter and safer cars and transportation systems, renewable energy, processes and raw materials. This could be seen through the numerous applications received in these topics.

“JEC Group strategy towards composites end-users appears to be truly appropriate when we notice all these industries represented in this list of winners. One can only notice that composites are now fully part of our everyday life and it is just the beginning.” Says Ms. Frédérique MUTEL, JEC Group President & CEO.

The ceremony will take place on Thursday November 2nd, 2017 at the COEX Center of Seoul (South Korea) in the conference room of JEC Asia level 1 from 3:30 p.m. Ida DAUSSY (Seo Hye-na), a French-born South Korean broadcaster who has been awarded a presidential citation in 2005 by the South Korean Government, will host the ceremony in front of officials, industrialists, scientists and composites professionals.

Press members are cordially invited to join the ceremony
