The project was led by IDI’s process engineering manager, Mark Stephenson, who explains, “This is an example of our long-term commitment to our customers, employees and the composites industry. The tank farm expansion was essential to support our market development into our new advanced product platforms like Flamevex, Alluralite, Fortium and Ultrium.”

IDI says that Flamevex, Alluralite, Fortium and Ultrium are composite materials with custom performance characteristics designed to serve specific industry needs such as high flame retardancy for battery covers in electric vehicles (EV) and new energy vehicles (NEV) markets, external automotive appearance grades, high strength and impact resistance and carbon fiber composites.

“We cannot underestimate the effect that these investments have on the overall morale of our employees, and the composites industry,” says Stephenson. “All employees want to see progress in their workplace. Projects like these help reinforce the commitment of ownership and management not only to our customers and markets served, but also to our employees who come to work every day, especially in these difficult times.”
