To support its ambitious growth strategy North Thin Ply Technology (NTPT™), a world leader in lightweight prepreg materials, is pleased to announce the appointment of Technology Marketing Inc (TMI) as its distributor for the USA.
The distribution agreement covers NTPT's complete range of prepreg materials and engineered composite products, including thin ply prepregs in weights down to 15 g/m2, conventional prepregs of 100-300 g/m2, multiaxial preforms, and highly uniform carbon fibre tubes and machinable composite blocks. NTPT’s products are used in a wide range of high-performance composite applications in the marine, motorsports, aerospace, sports and luxury goods sectors.
TMI, headquartered in Salt Lake City, Utah, offers a wide range of high quality materials and accessories specifically tuned to the needs of composites manufacturers serving the aerospace, construction, automotive, marine, sporting goods and related industries.
NTPT's products are complementary to TMI's existing product range and the partnership will deliver enhanced levels of customer service. The experience and technical expertise of TMI's team will support the continued expansion of NTPT's US business.
TMI's appointment follows the retirement of NTPT's US sales manager Mike Mettenet at the end of May 2016.
Headquartered in Switzerland, NTPT™ is preparing for significant growth in 2016. The company is currently relocating its Polish manufacturing operations to new expanded facilities, and in January it announced the expansion of its European distribution network with the appointment of Bodo Mӧller Chemie GmbH as its distributor for France, Spain and the Benelux.
"We've seen strong demand for our products over the past two years and as a result we are putting into place a number of initiatives during 2016 designed to cope with this demand and expand our business globally," reports James Austin, CEO of NTPT™. "With its expertise in our target markets TMI is the ideal partner to support this growth strategy."
“TMI are pleased to add the North Thin Ply Technology portfolio of materials and equipment to our existing product lines," adds Pat McGill, President of TMI. "We are sure our customers will benefit from this interesting technology, allied with the TMI sales and support service which they already benefit from.”
The distribution agreement begins with immediate effect.
