VELOX GmbH (Hamburg, Germany), a distributor of composites materials in Europe, announced their new partnership with Composites Evolution (Chesterfield, U.K.), the British supplier of natural fibers. VELOX will supply the Biotex product range to France, the U.K. and Italy starting July 2014.

This partnership allows Composites Evolution to make the most of VELOX's comprehensive sales network, introducing the natural reinforcements in the European composites industry. Biotex products are a range of high-performance natural reinforcement yarns, fabrics (woven and non-crimp) and preconsolidated sheets suitable for fiber-reinforced plastic composite applications.

“We look forward to cooperating with Composites Evolution and are excited to add their natural fiber based products to our product portfolio for the composites market. It is a complementary fit to our current product range, as we can offer sustainable natural solutions to our customers," says Serge Gradys, business manager for composites at VELOX. Biotex materials can be used in various applications such as automotive, construction, marine, sports and consumer goods.

“As part of our on-going global distribution strategy, VELOX were the clear choice to help seize the opportunity and expand our market for our natural fibers in the French, Italian and UK territories,” says Gordon Bishop, managing director of Composites Evolution Limited.

Composites Evolution's product lines include fibers, resins and intermediates based on natural, bio-derived, recycled and recyclable feedstocks, which enable customers to meet cost, weight and environmental targets.
