CFK Valley and Carbon Composites merge to create Composites United

CFK Valley eV and Carbon Composites eV are merging under the new name Composites United eV, expanding their global network for fiber-based lightweight construction.

CFK Valley eV and Carbon Composites eV have announced a merger under the name Composites United eV (Berlin, Germany). According to the companies, this will create the world's largest network for fiber-based multimaterial lightweight construction.

With the merger, Composites United has around 400 members and international offices in Switzerland, Austria, Belgium, Japan, South Korea, China and India. The seat of the new association is Berlin, though the existing locations Augsburg and Stade will be preserved and will be responsible for the professional leadership of the association. 

The merger was decided on February 2, 2019 by the two general meetings, unanimously and without dissenting vote. The clubs were historically based on different industries, but the new synergy resulting from the merger rates both partners as economically sensible and politically desirable.
