The distribution agreement covers NTPT's complete range of prepreg materials and engineered composite products.

Switzerland-based North Thin Ply Technology (NTPT) announced that Technology Marketing Inc., Salt Lake City, (TMI) will serve as its distributor for the U.S. The distribution agreement covers NTPT's complete range of prepreg materials and engineered composite products, including thin ply prepregs in weights down to 15 g/m2, conventional prepregs of 100-300 g/m2, multiaxial preforms and highly uniform carbon fiber tubes and machinable composite blocks. NTPT’s products are used in a wide range of composite applications in the marine, motorsports, aerospace, sports and luxury goods sectors.

TMI offers a wide range of high quality materials and accessories specifically tuned to the needs of composites manufacturers serving the aerospace, construction, automotive, marine, sporting goods and related industries. TMI's appointment follows the retirement of NTPT's U.S. sales manager Mike Mettenet at the end of May 2016.

NTPT says it is preparing for significant growth in 2016. The company is currently relocating its Polish manufacturing operations to new expanded facilities, and in January it announced the expansion of its European distribution network with the appointment of Bodo Mӧller Chemie GmbH as its distributor for France, Spain and the Benelux.

"We've seen strong demand for our products over the past two years and as a result we are putting into place a number of initiatives during 2016 designed to cope with this demand and expand our business globally," said James Austin, CEO of NTPT. "With its expertise in our target markets, TMI is the ideal partner to support this growth strategy."
