NTPT forms plans for growth for 2016

Prepreg specialist North Thin Ply Technology (NTPT) says that it is preparing for significant growth in 2016. As part of this expansion, the company has appointed Bodo M?ller Chemie GmbH as its distributor for the France, Spain and Benelux regions.

The distribution agreement covers NTPT's complete range of prepreg materials and engineered composite products, including thin ply prepregs in weights down to 15 g/m2, conventional prepregs of 100-300 g/m2, multiaxial preforms and highly uniform carbon fiber tubes and machineable composite blocks. NTPT’s products are used in a wide range of composite applications in the marine, motorsports, aerospace, sports and luxury goods sectors.

Bodo M?ller Chemie is a supplier of speciality chemicals to the composites, plastics, adhesives, coatings and other industrial sectors. NTPT's products are reportedly complementary to Bodo M?ller's composites portfolio.

‘We've seen strong demand for our products over the past two years and as a result we will put into place a number of initiatives during 2016 designed to cope with this demand and expand our business globally,’ said James Austin, CEO of NTPT. ‘With its expertise in our target markets Bodo M?ller is the ideal partner to support this growth strategy.’
