JEC Group have brought together the international community of composites leaders and executives in our Composites Circle as an unique networking opportunity to meet with both peers and future partners.
Hexcel Corporation announces that it has acquired full ownership of Formax UK Limited. The company acquired a 50% interest in the privately-owned company in December 2014.
Located in Leicester, UK, Formax is a manufacturer of composite reinforcements, specializing in the production of lightweight carbon fiber multi-axials and highly engineered glass fiber and aramid fiber fabrics. The purchase of the remaining interest in Formax will allow Hexcel to further advance dry reinforcements technology for future aerospace applications and provide scale for growing industrial markets.
Hexcel’s Chairman, CEO and President, Nick Stanage, stated: “Our joint venture has demonstrated how well Formax technologies and products complement our product line and will help us grow our aerospace and industrial businesses. We believe that fully integrating the Formax operations into Hexcel will enable us to accelerate the synergies between our operations and enhance our abilities to provide innovative solutions to our customers. We welcome Formax to our company, and we’re looking forward to a successful future together.”
