COMPOSITES TOOLBOX

Composite materials are re-writing what's possible

Our advanced composite materials and expertise can help engineers realize their most ambitious ideas, giving them access to more lightweight and sustainable design solutions.

Lightweight composite materials enable ambitious engineering projects.
Our scalable and cost-efficient Composites Toolbox

From raw materials to scrap collection and recycling, our Composites Toolbox can help bring market-driving, scalable innovations to life across a range of industries and previously unfeasible applications. We partner with OEMs and engineers to give them the tools they need to successfully replace traditional materials with cost-effective, future-ready composite materials.

By constantly broadening our portfolio and simplifying the implementation process, our Composites Toolbox is always evolving to provide high-performance, highly functional, and cost-efficient solutions. With our collaborative approach and extensive portfolio, we’ll help you find precisely the right composite materials and tools to transform your products and processes.


October 2022 - January 2023 The Composites Engineering Challenge

Rewrite the rules of scaling with composite materials

Have an original idea that we can help you scale? We are looking for startups and scale-ups who aim to ramp up production and are in need of the right combination of materials, design support, and production technology. 

The Composite Engineering Challenge is open to entrepreneurs and innovators globally, providing them with the opportunity to access up to $25,000 USD worth of support to scale their project.
