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.
Professor and Architect Mark Goulthorpe, of the MIT Department of Architecture, confirmed as guest keynote speaker for the Future of Composites in Construction.
This center, which groups together 80 people, is designed to support Plastic Omnium's growth among Japanese automotive manufacturers.
It houses the design and management of the development of new automotive programs and ensures sales development for all Plastic Omnium's automotive activities – exterior components and modules, fuel systems and emissions control systems - for Japanese manufacturers.
Plastic Omnium partners the Japanese manufacturers Honda, Isuzu, Nissan, Suzuki and Toyota, which it supplies on 4 continents and in 14 different countries. The share of these manufacturers, which represents 6% of Plastic Omnium's global automotive revenue, is expected to increase with the construction of new production capacity and the development of innovative offerings.
The Group is in particular involved in the construction of a new Asian plant for Maruti-Suzuki and has recently launched production of the SCR emissions control system for Toyota's diesel vehicles at its Kitakyushu plant in Japan.
