Composites core materials manufacturer DIAB Group (Laholm, Sweden) has announced the launch of its new initiative, the Composites Consulting Group (CCG). CCG is an independent consulting company within the DIAB Group with the mission to deliver worldclass engineering and manufacturing services for composite materials to enable development of innovative products. CCG will be supported by its own sales force as well as all DIAB sales companies globally.
CCG builds on DIAB’s experience with sandwich composites in various industries. Services offered by CCG will include industrial design, engineering, testing, processing, training and customer-specific composites consulting.
Markets include marine (recreational, commercial, defence), renewable energy (wind, waves, solar), civil infrastructure (cladding, shelters), transportation (rail, caravan, motor home, buses, trucks), industrial (tanks, sculptures, containers, antennas) and defense applications.
DIAB CEO Anders Paulsson explained: “We are very excited as we know that there is a big need for engineering services within composites — enquiries are increasing. Many companies would like to utilize the benefits of composites and sandwich structures. We are in a good position to serve those needs with all the expertise built over many years through our technical service and DIAB Technologies, with numerous projects successfully carried through on all continents. Creating an independent group will further improve our service worldwide, with the focus to create a power house of composite knowledge including a complete offering adding high value within many industries”.
Headed by recently appointed Lennart Thålin, CCG is expanding its capacity globally by recruiting experienced composites engineers. Lennart joins DIAB with extensive engineering consulting experience, most recently with Epsilon, a technology and systems development consultancy.
