JEC Composites Exhibition: Formax announces company reorganisation and reveals R&D investment plan

Formax : 26 March, 2013  (Company News)
As a measure to improve and facilitate future growth, Formax, the manufacturer of carbon fibre and speciality composite reinforcements, is announcing expansion plans and a new company organisation. Investment in Formax' R&D function will also be a focus as the company looks to strengthen its product development capabilities during the coming year

A new company organisation focuses on the creation of three Business Sectors for the Marine, Automotive and Industrial markets. The formation of the individual sectors will ensure a highly specialised service, as each division is supported by technicians and sales staff with market specific skills and expertise.

Formax has seen tremendous growth in the last five years, and will also expand its production facilities in Narborough, where the company has secured a 2000 sq.m site to house an additional manufacturing plant and composite testing equipment.

Formax will be investing in its R&D functions: a prestigious Knowledge Transfer Partnership (KTP) with Nottingham University commences in Spring 2013 with the aim of developing a comprehensive material characterisation capability and advanced simulation methodology for composites. Other primary areas of research include the recycling of waste carbon fabrics into short fibre products for use in tooling laminates, carbon ceramics and structural composites; and the elimination of fabric waste in future composite manufacture.
