Cytec Industries Inc. (Woodland Park, NJ, US) announced on April 20 opening of a new composite material kitting facility based in Toulouse, France, adjacent to its existing Process Materials site. This opening is a milestone for Cytec in its strategy to bring manufacturing capabilities for value-added products and services closer to its Europe based customers.

This facility has the capacity needed for the manufacture of large vacuum bagging consumable kits for applications such as aircraft wings or wind turbine blades. Cytec says local manufacturing capabilities added to the company's expertise in consultancy and design of complex kits and shaped bags will enable Cytec to meet growing customer requirements in Europe.

Cytec Process Materials already offers its kitting services out of its sites in Keighley, UK, Santa Fe Springs, CA, US, Sumner, WA, US, and Mondovi, Italy.

Shane Fleming, Cytec’s president, chairman and CEO, says: “This is an exciting time for Cytec. Over the past few years, we have been reshaping our portfolio of businesses and focusing on growing the materials segments, which comprise two-thirds of Cytec’s global revenues. The investment in this facility is a perfect complement to our legacy business where we have supplied structural materials to the aerospace market for almost 50 years.”

William Avrin, Cytec’s vice-president for business development, adds: “This opening marks a fundamental part of our strategy in Process Materials — to understand where we can add value to the aerospace market. And this facility does just that: We have developed tailor-made process material consumable kit sets that dramatically reduce the total cost of manufacture for our customers.”
