France-based Chomarat recently celebrated the opening of a new plant in Anderson, S.C. The 58,500-ft2 facility will manufacture Chomarat’s advanced composite textiles — including carbon, spread-tow, multiaxial reinforcements and carbon looms — using Liba Max5 100-inch machines. “Our aim is to promote our latest innovations and to develop new partnerships in order to provide the North American market with advanced reinforcements, thanks to our highly skilled staff and state-of-the-art machinery,” said Florent Troubat, president, Chomarat. According to the company, its C-PLY™ advanced textiles offer significant advantages to the aerospace and automotive industries. “The C-PLY offerings are touted as completely gap-free, a feat normal aerospace woven fabrics cannot yet claim,” said Michel Cognet, general manager, Chomarat.

Woonsocket, R.I.-based T.E.A.M. Inc. recently broke ground on an expansion project at its Woonsocket facility. The expansion is expected to be complete by March 2015. “This expansion will effectively double the size of our Woonsocket facility allowing us to better meet the growing needs of current programs while also giving us the added space to pursue additional opportunities,” said Steve Clarke, president and co-founder, T.E.A.M. “We’re in the process of evaluating and acquiring new equipment, which will increase our 2-D and 3-D weaving capacity and expand our product capabilities,” added Jerry Moore, vice president and co-founder, T.E.A.M. The announcement follows a relocation and expansion project completed earlier this year at the company’s West Coast Division in Vacaville, Calif., which specializes in 2-D woven roll goods. “We relocated the company to a larger manufacturing space which allowed us to add additional equipment and improve upon current capabilities,” Moore said.

Germany-based technical textiles producer Heytex Group has acquired BondCote Corp., Pulaski, Va. BondCote will form the center of Heytex’s North American operations including sales, technical and logistics for all Heytex products. Heytex has retained existing BondCote employees including management personnel. The combined group has four production sites on three continents. Two are located in Germany,  one in Pulaski, and a fourth is in China. “We pursue a long-term strategy and set standards with our innovative products,” said Dr. Heribert Decher, CEO, Heytex. “With BondCote as a new member of the Heytex family, we have made the next, very important step.”
