Following an increased demand for its lightweight prepreg materials, North Thin Ply Technology (NTPT), Penthalaz-Cossonay, Switzerland, will be unveiling plans of growth and expansion at JEC World 2016. These include a significant increase and investment in its production facilities with the relocation of its main production plant in Poland, the expansion of its global distribution network, the appointment of senior management figures, and a move to new Swiss headquarters.

The company will be increasing its production capacity during 2016 and relocating its Polish manufacturing facility to larger premises in March in response to rising demand for both its thin ply and conventional prepregs over the past two years. The new 2000 m2 production plant in Zory will also house the company's automated tape laying (ATL) equipment which is used to produce custom multiaxial preforms from its unidirectional (UD) prepreg tapes.

To support this growth strategy, an expanded distribution network is also being put into place. The company announced the appointment of Bodo Möller Chemie as its distributor for Spain, France and the Benelux countries in January, and it is now looking for distribution partners for other regions.

During the second quarter of 2016, NTPT will also relocate its headquarters and R&D activities to a new site in Renens, Lausanne, which offers improved amenities, and will continue to expand its R&D, sales and production teams during the year.

"2016 is a year of change for NTPT as we ramp up our prepreg production capacity and extend our sales and marketing channels," reports , NTPT's CEO. "At the same time we will continue to offer the flexible order quantities, fast delivery times and excellent customer service for which we are known."
