JM to manage its composites business 'more globally'

Previously, JM operated two Engineered Products business units: one for the Americas and one for Europe and Asia. The realignment keeps some of the regional components, mostly within the nonwovens business, while the composites, filtration and energy storage businesses will be managed more globally.

JM’s Engineered Products business manufactures glass fibre reinforcements for composites, glass and polyester nonwoven products for the building and construction industry, filtration and battery separation media, and speciality industrial glass products. Its products for the composites industry include StarRov® direct rovings and MultiStar® assembled rovings for applications in thermoplastics and thermoset composites.

Transitioning to one Engineered Products organisation furthers our global reach, while maintaining the regional support our customers require.
Mary Rhinehart., President and CEO, JM

Enno Henze, who is responsible for JM’s nonwovens, fibres and glass textiles businesses in Europe, as well as its nonwovens business in China, will lead the newly created Engineered Products business as Senior Vice President and General Manager.
