“As wind turbines continue to increase their efficiencies with longer, lighter-weight blades, we continue to see an increase in demand for our carbon fiber. We also see developing applications in automotive and energy storage. So there are several favorable macro trends that we expect will continue to support our rapid growth. We will continue to aggressively expand our capacity to stay ahead of demand and ensure we support our customer agreements.”

Zoltek continues its mission to commercialize carbon fiber, and increase its position as the global leader in industrial-grade carbon fiber. Zoltek’s PX35 50K carbon fiber, which is produced in Hungary and Mexico, is the established standard for large-scale industrial applications such as wind energy and automotive.
