METYX Group (Istanbul, Turkey), a manufacturer of high-performance technical textiles including multiaxial reinforcements, carbon fiber reinforcements, RTM reinforcements, woven reinforcements and vacuum bagging products, is emphasizing its new manufacturing capacity in Ranlo, NC, US. The facility, in which METYX invested US$3.5 million, includes 30 acres of land and a 12,000m2 plant. The US operations in North Carolina, expected to employ up to 200 people in near future, are initially focused on setting up technical textiles production lines for manufacturing a range of glass and carbon fiber fabrics, along with sales, customer service and warehousing facilities to serve the North American composites market. As a next phase, in line with customer needs, fabric, core and vacuum consumable kit cutting capabilities will be added. METYX is primarily looking to establish business with US and Canadian OEMs and Tier 1 converters in the wind energy generation, marine, road and rail transportation and industrial sectors.
