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.
Milliken & Company announced that it has acquired the assets of Webcore Technologies of Miamisburg, OH. WebCore Technologies is the creator of a patented fiber reinforced composite core material known as TYCOR®, which is used in a variety of applications in wind energy, transporation as well as other infrastructure markets.
“The addition of TYCOR demonstrates our continued commitment to innovation and our core belief in bringing products to market that support sustainability, improve health and safety, and enhance lives,” states Joe Salley, CEO. “With TYCOR, we can make a real difference to our customers, and ultimately consumers, by helping make wind turbine blades more efficient and less costly to construct.”
“This technology fits well within Milliken’s portfolio of composites and performance materials that are helping deal with important challenges in building and infrastructure markets around the world,” said Sim Skinner, President of performance products at Milliken. “TYCOR is a perfect example of the impact you can have on issues like sustainability when you combine keen insights with science and design.”
Milliken plans to continue the TYCOR product line, build upon TYCOR’s success in wind energy, and expand its availability globally.
