The ThermoPlastic composites Research Centre (TPRC, Enschede, the Netherlands) has announced that Latécoère (Toulouse, France) has joined the TPRC as a new Tier 1 member. As a leader in the field of Aerostructures and Interconnection systems, Latécoère works closely with the major aircraft manufacturers and airlines, from design through to the production of its products. Alongside Latécoère’s Engineering and R&T divisions, Latécoère Czech Republic (Letňany, Czechia) is home to the group’s Composite Center of Competence.

With its continuous research into innovative aerospace products and processes, Latécoère has developed expertise in various fields of composite technologies (RTM, LRI). As thermoplastic materials pave the way for high-rates, cost-efficient and sustainable production processes, Latécoère joins the TPRC to make use of its know-how and develop international R&T partnerships, from upstream to applied research and product development.

Harald Heerink, General Manager at the TPRC says, “Latécoère joining the TPRC as a Tier 1 member demonstrates the company´s long term commitment to research into innovative aerospace products and processes.”
