ACMA Recommends Greater Use of Composites in Transportation and Defense

November 06 2017

During the American Composites Manufacturers Association's (ACMA) inaugural Transportation and Defense Policy Fly-In event, ACMA member companies and staff connected with 75 Members of Congress, their staff and key decision makers from federal agencies.

The purpose of the event was to provide participants access to information on federal markets for composites products and to advocate the growth of the defense and transportation markets for the composites industry.

Rep. Joe Wilson (R-S.C.), the chairman of the Congressional Composites Caucus, kicked off the event by addressing how composites are transforming the defense sector. Sen. Joe Donnelly (D-Ind.), a former chairman of the Congressional Composites Caucus, expressed his admiration for the use of composites to improve ballistic applications, such as bulletproof vests.
Attendees at the event also had the chance to hear from federal agency officials to see how composites impact the strategic objectives of their agencies.

ACMA will be doing follow on webinars with several agencies that are providing market opportunities in composites. ACMA's next policy fly-in, the third annual Infrastructure Day, will take place February 7-8, 2018.
