Researchers, suppliers and manufacturers are working together at the TPRC on the research and development of thermoplastic composites.

A collaboration agreement was signed three years ago in June 2009, which resulted in the creation of the TPRC. The Province of Overijssel, the Twente Region, EFRO and the central government provided a subsidy of more than 4 million pound in 2010. Industry contributes at least the same amount. In early 2012, five other companies joined the TPRC: Instron (Norwood, Mass., USA), Dutch Thermoplastic Components (DTC, Almere, The Netherlands), Pinette Emidecau Industries (Chalon sur Saône, France), Italmatic SrL (Cassina de Pecchi, Italy) and AniForm (Deventer, The Netherlands).
