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.
The company based in Augusta, Maine, has acquired the assets of the recently dissolved Harbor Technologies, LLC, of Brunswick, Maine. Kenway Corporation is a composite manufacturer that specializes in products for the heavy industry, infrastructure and government/military markets.
This acquisition expands Kenway Corporation’s product offerings in the waterfront infrastructure market, allowing the company to leverage its extensive composites engineering, manufacturing and field service capabilities.Harbor Technologies is now a division of Kenway Corporation and will continue to develop the products introduced by the former Brunswick manufacturer. These products include the composite HarborPile, a piling ranging in diameter from 8” to over 96” that’s used in load-bearing, guiding and fendering applications; as well as the HarborCamel, a composite fender used for impact protection for both vessels and piers. Kenway will expand these offerings into engineered composite systems that include the composite beams, lumber, stay-in-place forms and other components required for a complete system installation. Customers range from federal and state organizations — such as the U.S. Coast Guard, U.S. Navy and Departments of Transportation — to commercial and private waterfront developers.The Harbor Technologies assets are being moved to Kenway’s Augusta facility, which is expanding with the addition of 10,000 square feet of manufacturing space. Harbor Technologies’ management team has joined Kenway Corporation and will remain operating out of Brunswick. The acquisition represents the continued expansion for Kenway Corporation into the infrastructure market where composite solutions are increasingly solving corrosion challenges. In recent years, the company has become a preferred vendor to the U.S. Navy for the Universal Composite Submarine Camel, with installations in New London, CT, and Norfolk, VA. Kenway Corporation was also the composite manufacturing partner for the world’s only composite floating bridge, a historic Vermont landmark that was restored through a modern composite solution.The Harbor Technologies Division of Kenway Corporation has already begun servicing marine infrastructure customers with shipments of HarborPiles for a New Jersey Department of Transportation project, and upcoming shipments of HarborPiles and HarborCamels are scheduled to ship to California, Maine and Massachusetts.More information: www.kenway.com
