Over the last decade, TPI says it has produced hundreds of wind turbine blade moulds, of 30-60 m in length, from its Tooling Technology Center in Warren, Rhode Island.
The company, a supplier of composite products to the wind energy, military and transportation markets, will continue to support the North American market from Rhode Island while also providing cost effective tooling solutions for the rest of the world from China.
TPI’s Taicang facility has operated since 2008, and manufactured thousands of blades to internationally accepted high quality standards.
We have started production of our first set of wind blade moulds in China and are looking to add more customers.

“We have learned how critically important it is to our wind blade operations to have high performing moulds and assembly systems that are both dimensionally accurate and reliable over time,” says Steve Lockard, President & CEO of TPI Composites.
TPI’s Tooling Technology Center will transfer the best of TPI’s technology to the China operation to produce tooling to international requirements and demanding specifications.
