Adler Plastics developing automotive composites excellence with Amber Composites

Amber Composites announced that its material has been specified for the primary structure of a major automotive build. Prototype and homologation material has been supplied since 2011 and series production will begin in 2013.

As part of the project, Adler Plastics, a leading Tier-1 automotive supplier, and Amber Composites have worked together to establish a supply chain able to supply mid-volume composite solutions to the automotive industry worldwide. The first vehicle, expected to be in production for at least five years, is viewed as a starting point for the companies.

“We are proud to supply material for one of the first mid-volume automotive projects where the entire chassis is built from carbon fiber”, said Andrew Dugmore, Sales Director for Amber Composites. “And working closely with a Tier 1 supplier like Adler helps us to develop the products and processes that the automotive industry requires.”
