The two companies will develop technology that builds on Hexcel's expertise in polyurethanes for the ski industry and will make use of its strength in providing high-performance composites to wind energy customers and expanding to other markets for composite applications.

 

METYX is, on the other hand, a manufacturer of high-performance NCF and woven glass and carbon, consumables, core and fabric kitting, molds, prototypes, and components for industries including wind energy, marine, automotive, rail and construction.
