Airtech Europe (Differdange, Luxembourg), the Luxembourg division of Airtech Advanced Materials Group (Huntington Beach, Calif.), a producer of supplies for composites infusion applications, reports that it has doubled the size of its plant and now covers now 14,500 sq-m/156,000 sq-ft.

The 8000-sq-m/86,111-sq-ft expansion of the existing Luxembourg facility will accommodate more warehouse space and production equipment, including a separate area dedicated to custom-engineered products. This expanded line will progressively come on stream in the next few weeks. The new kit line is expected to increase the capacity and capability of producing vacuum bagging materials into customer specified shapes.

Airtech Europe had already added new office space in July 2007 in order to dedicate more manufacturing space to value-added services and new products in the existing building. Nevertheless, the continuous growth of the composite market has made more important changes necessary for the plant.
