4M Carbon Fibre Corp has become part of the Composite Applications Group (CAG), a consortium of companies that produce carbon fibre, use fibre in composite parts, deploy advanced CFRP technologies, and utilise composite reinforced plastic (CFRP) parts. Composites are being increasingly used in transportation, marine markets, and aerospace sectors.

The mission of CAG is to “build relationships between our consortium of creators and the large untapped customer based with limited knowledge and significant interest in developing composite solutions for their changing product needs” says the CAG website.

As the carbon fibre and composites industries continue to make rapid technological advancements, there is a great need for research and development organisations, composite and carbon fibre manufacturers, and national laboratories to come together with end-users and identify the best solutions that match each one’s unique needs and capabilities.

On November 1, 4M Carbon Fibre officially joined CAG to partner with other organisations and potential customers and has already initiated discussions with CAG members about joint development agreements and business partnerships that provide mutual benefits.

“We are excited to be a part of CAG,” said 4M CEO Rob Klawonn. “We have known Jeff and some of the other CAG members for a long time and realised that we (4M) can both provide and receive significant technological and economic benefit from these partnerships.”

Jeff McCay from CAG said, “We are very excited to align Composite Applications Group with the innovative carbon fibre technology from 4M Carbon Fibre. This technology is a nice addition to CAG and our partner and customer network. We look forward to further working with the team at 4M and being a part of seeing this technology move forward.”

The CAG partners include Structural Composites, Cornerstone Research Group, Magnum Venus Products, Nippon Electric Glass (NEG formerly PPG), TruDesign, Diversified Structural Composites and Nona.

The CAG customers include Wabash National, Heil Trailer International, Inoac USA, Transcraft, Mueller Company, Department of Energy and Trinity Industries. (SV)
