Using advanced manufacturing technologies and processes, UF provides durable fibreglass conduit products to support public utility, transportation, commercial and technology industries. Fibreglass conduit is an overall cost-efficient and environmentally sustainable alternative to steel, PVC, clay, copper and other conduit pipe materials and offers benefits such as light weight, corrosion resistance, fire resistance, durability and non-conductivity.

“On behalf of the Creative Composites Group, I am pleased to announce the acquisition of United Fiberglass, which will expand our composite manufacturing capabilities to service key infrastructure markets and enhance our capabilities to develop highly engineered composite systems and solutions to meet our customers’ needs,” says Shane Weyant, Chairman/CEO for Creative Composites Group. “We are excited to have the UF team join our ever-expanding CCG team, and we look forward to working closely with their CEO, Kevin Barnett, during this exciting time of growth in our industry.”

UF’s high-performance fibreglass conduit products are produced by winding the material in exacting patterns, which results in stronger and lighter structures over steel. This process is highly flexible and easily adaptable to create custom specifications efficiently. UF’s manufacturing approach will complement the advanced manufacturing techniques CCG uses to produce custom components for customer products and systems.

“We at United Fiberglass are very excited to join our capabilities, resources and staff with those of Creative Composites Group,” said Kevin Barnett, CEO for United Fiberglass. “This combination strengthens the group’s leadership position in serving the broad FRP composites needs of the markets we collectively serve. Our team looks forward to working with CCG in building better and more resilient products for the nation’s infrastructure and commercial needs.”

This is CCG’s second acquisition in 2023. CCG acquired Enduro Composites earlier this year, enabling CCG to expand its geographic reach in the Western and Southwestern U.S. while also building on its portfolio by adding building panels, cable management systems and water/wastewater industry products.
