Reinforcement leader Kordsa has entered into a supplier agreement with British company TRB Lightweight Structures to supply carbon fibre fabrics for mass production of EV battery enclosures. Lightweight composites are key to development of electric vehicles and sustainable transport solutions. Kordsa has been working with industry for sustainable future.

Kordsa has recently secured the supplier agreement with TRB Lightweight Structures, a global high-volume composites manufacturing company. TRB is using Kordsa’s carbon fibre fabrics in the manufacture of its composite battery enclosures for EVs.

The project was initiated at TRB facilities in the UK, and will continue at the company's US facilities in Kentucky. Kordsa’s strong global supply chain will enable the company to provide carbon fibre fabrics to TRB both from Turkey and its US-based company, Fabric Development. Kordsa launched shipments to the UK in November to support TRB’s mass production of EV battery packs.

Commenting on the TRB cooperation, Kordsa CEO Ali Çaliskan said: “Through this project, we are now reinforcing a wider area of life with our new collaborations in the field of composites. This valuable supplier agreement with TRB will enable the use of our carbon fibre fabrics in EV battery packs, helping reduce their weight without compromising their quality. We are pleased to work with TRB, with whom we share a similar vision for the future - to contribute to the world's successful transition to sustainable transportation.”
