Employing around 5,100 people, we are a global company with more than 29 high-performing production sites in Europe, North America, and Asia. Thanks to our extensive sales network, we are close to our customers and their markets.
Our core business comprises two business units: Composites – Fibers & Materials (CFM) and Graphite Materials & Systems (GMS). The Central Innovation department, which is based at our largest site in Meitingen near Augsburg, is responsible for overarching research and development relating to innovative technologies and products that will complement our portfolio in the medium to long term.
- Textile materials
- Pre-impregnated materials
- Blocks & expanded graphite
- Semi-finished materials
- Central Innovation (CI): Research & Development, growth fields, start-ups
- Central functions & services
We have more than 40 years of experience in carbon fibers and composite materials covering the entire value chain – from precursor, carbon fibers, textiles, and pre-impregnated materials to finished components made from fiber-reinforced plastics.
We are a development partner for high-quality technological solutions based on specialty graphite. We have in-depth knowledge of the exceptional properties of graphite in all its forms and we know how it behaves in a wide range of processes and in combination with other materials.
One of our specific research topics is 3D printing with components made from carbon materials. Working with a number of external partners, we test and develop prototypes in fields such as environmental technology.
