Based on its extensive resources of around 10.000 hectares of balsa plantations in Ecuador, the global player now offers more solutions that are customized to the market.
Balsa combines unique characteristics such as strength and stiffness, which is in demand for sandwich constructions in numerous markets, from wind rotor blades to construction applications (e.g. BALTEK SBC).
With its customer-oriented market strategy 3A Composites thus consistently continued the development of and investment in the industrialization of different balsa manufactures both in Ecuador and Sins, Switzerland. Structural core materials and interior panels based on balsa veneer are an important material for existing and new markets, such as marine applications as well as furniture and architectural interiors.
For 3A Composites, the commitment to sustainability is equally important for innovation and continuous improvement. Owning the entire balsa product cycle from seedling to finished material, 3A Composites can guarantee unrivalled process and quality controls both by itself and in cooperation with the independent FSC organization.
Roman Thomassin, CEO of 3A Composites Division Core Materials states: “Our customers can truly rely on our drive for improvements – for their own benefits. FSC`s certification of our location in Sins is the result of our consequent improvement strategy of relevant processes. Being - and remaining - a reliable partner is the top priority of our business.”
