Sigmatex Group — a United-Kingdom-based manufacturer of carbon fiber textiles for composite material applications — is investing 2.8 million euros to add equipment and employees at its Runcorn, UK, site.
 
The investment includes an additional state-of-the-art Liba Multiaxial line; a Meyer Powder Coating line featuring infrared heating and a belt press; and a number of new Dornier looms, research and development looms and Open Reed Weaving technology with multiaxial weaving capabilities.
 
The company reports it also will increase its workforce at the facility by more than 20 percent. Production is expected to come on-line in the second quarter of 2014.
 
“Through the commitment of the board, the considerable efforts of the workforce, Sigmatex will continue to lead material innovation within the composites market through textile and operational excellence,” said Ian Marchant, general manager, Sigmatex.
