METYX Setting Up New Technical Textiles Division in the USA

March 26 2018

METYX Group has completed an agreement with the Gaston County Economic Development Commission in North Carolina to acquire a manufacturing facility for its new METYX USA Technical Textiles Division. An acquisition of 30 acre (120 000 sq. m) site and existing buildings has been finalized, which includes 130,000 square feet (~ 12,000 sq. m) of covered space. The site is located in Ranlo, Gaston County. Production is expected to start by the end of Q3 2018.
The planned new METYX US operations in North Carolina, expected to employ up to 200 people, will initially focus on setting up technical textiles production lines for manufacturing a range of glass and carbon fabrics, along with sales, customer service and warehousing facilities to serve the North American composites market. As a next phase, in line with customer needs, fabric, core and vacuum consumable kit cutting capabilities will be added in the future. METYX is primarily looking to establish business with US and Canadian OEMs and tier 1 converters in the wind energy generation, marine, road and rail transportation and industrial sectors. Ustunel will head up METYX USA working alongside newly appointed advisory board team members Christian Kissinger, Evren Aykol and Stefan Kanburoglu, who will play a key role in getting METYX USA up and running in the coming months.
