The installation of this SMC line in France will be used to further develop the company’s range of proprietary, advanced composite products.

Continental Structural Plastics (CSP, Auburn Hills, MI, US), a Teijin Group Company (Osaka, Japan), announced on July 31 it will be installing a sheet molding compound (SMC) line at its facility in Pouancé, France. CSP will invest approximately €5.1 million ($6 million) to establish the SMC line.

CSP is currently the largest compounder of SMC in North America, with current SMC volumes exceeding 84,000 US tons annually. The installation of this SMC line in France will be used to further develop the company’s range of proprietary, advanced composite products. The line will be capable of producing SMCs made with both glass and carbon fibers and is expected to be commercially ready to produce SMC by the third quarter of 2019.
