MARKOS expands composites manufacturing operations

Poland-based MARKOS has added new composites manufacturing capacity committed to production using vacuum bag technology for the manufacture of large-size laminate products.

MARKOS (Slupsk, Poland) reports that it is building another production facility. The decision to do so resulted from an analysis of trends in the global composites market and was a response to growing customer needs for large-size laminate products.

The production area will be more than 2,000 m2/21,527-fit2 and another space of more than 900 m2/9,688 ft2 for additional  storage, offices and social rooms.

The new hall is dedicated to fiber-reinforced composites in vacuum bag molding technology. In the first stage, casing of wind turbines will be produced. Expected start date of production is August 2013.
