Owens Corning acquires FRP business

1 min read

Owens Corning Infrastructure Solutions, part of the Composites business of Owens Corning, has completed its acquisition of Aslan FRP, the concrete reinforcement business of US-based Hughes Brothers Inc.

Aslan FRP produces and markets glass and carbon fiber reinforced polymer (FRP) products used to reinforce concrete in infrastructure projects such as roads, bridges, marine structures, buildings and tunnels.

‘Infrastructure represents an important area of focus for Owens Corning Infrastructure Solutions to both grow our business and provide tangible, long-term benefits globally,’ said John Amonett, general manager, Infrastructure, Owens Corning. ‘The addition of Aslan FRP broadens our portfolio of composite solutions and adds new products that enhance the performance of concrete structures, while being lighter-weight and more corrosion-resistant than conventional steel reinforcements.’
