By expanding its footprint across Europe, Kordsa will provide its customers with the products developed in Turkey and the USA through its new hub.

Kordsa, a subsidiary of Sabancı Holding, reinforces its global leadership position with another investment. As Kordsa continues its transformation into an advanced material company, it also strengthens its position in European markets.

Kordsa had already acquired four composite technology companies in the United States and made sizable investments in Turkey. One of these investments is the Composite Technologies Centre of Excellence, which opened in 2016, Turkey’s exemplary industry-university cooperation model. 

Kordsa is now set to acquire the majority shares of the Italian Composites company, Microtex Composites, which provides carbon fiber fabrics and prepregs for marine, motorsport and super-luxury automotive industries in Europe.

The acquisition of shares is expected to be finalized in the second quarter of 2022, subject to the fulfilment of closing conditions required for Italian Golden Power approval. (Foreign Direct investments)
