Alcan Composites becomes 3A Composites

AIREX and BALTEK core material brands will remain unchanged.

Alcan Composites (Sins, Switzerland; Northvale, N.J., USA) announced on April 29 that it is changing its group name to 3A Composites. This change follows the 2009 acquisition of Alcan by Schweiter Technologies.

Under the 3A Composites group will be 3A Composites Core Materials, which will continue to offer composite core materials under the AIREX and BALTEK brands. E-mail addresses for 3A employees also will change to reflect the new name, using this format: firstname.lastname@3acomposites.com.
