Composite Resources (Rock Hill, N.C., USA), a designer, prototype developer and manufacturer of advanced composite solutions, announced on Sept. 20 that it has broken ground on a new 60,000-ft²/5,574m² expansion that will more than double the size of its operations. The expansion will bring Composite Resources' total engineering and manufacturing space to 112,000 ft²/10,405m².
“We are excited to see the excavation begin,” said Jonathan Bennett, founder and technical director of Composite Resources as well as founder and driver for CORE autosport. “The demand for our expertise continues to rise and we need more room to keep pace with our business growth,” said Bennett. “We’ve made investments this year in new technology and tooling that allows us to offer high-end, precision work that a lot of composite fabricators just can’t afford to offer and some of those tools take up a lot of space.”
“We’ve growth from existing customer orders and now that we’ve created CORE autosport, our motorsports clientele has grown also,” said Lisa Bennett, vice-president and director of operations for Composite Resources. “The outlook for high-end, composite materials engineering and manufacturing seems to be bullish over the next several years because companies can make parts lighter, stronger and more durable.” “New sectors are opening up too, like green energy and transportation, so it makes sense for us to expand in anticipation of that growth.”
