ITT Inc., a diversified leading manufacturer of highly engineered critical components and customized technology solutions, announced its investment in CRP Technology and CRP USA (collectively “CRP”). CRP is an industry leader in developing and manufacturing reinforced composite materials for 3D printing for the aerospace, defense, premium automotive, and motorsports industries. The company’s Windform high-performance materials enable engineers to develop complex, customized designs while providing lightweight and exceptionally durable products. With this investment, ITT owns 46% of CRP Technology and 33% of CRP USA.

“CRP is a smart investment for ITT. With almost three decades of leadership and innovation in additive manufacturing, CRP enables ITT to expand its position in material science and gain hands-on experience with additive manufacturing as the industries we serve continue to transform,” said Luca Savi, Chief Executive Officer and President of ITT. “We are proud to partner with CRP as they continue to grow and deliver industry-changing innovations. Together, ITT and CRP can bring to market new products that deliver sustainable, lightweight, durable solutions for our customers.”

CRP has advanced additive manufacturing capabilities through its Windform range of materials, the leading, lightweight, fiber-reinforced composite materials for industrial 3D printing. Initially focused on manufacturing high-performing parts and applications for racing, including Formula One vehicles, CRP now works with engineers in the transportation industries to create complex designs that help reduce mass, weight, and costs, while shortening lead times and enhancing endurance.

“This transaction will allow CRP to accelerate our growth-focused business plan in the markets we serve today and in new global markets,” said Franco Cevolini, Chief Executive Officer of CRP Technology. “We are proud to work with ITT to extend our scope and drive further innovation in the additive manufacturing industry.”
