Composites One has formed a partnership with Davis Applied Technology College (DATC), a public technical training institution in Utah, USA. The organization plant to improve the college’s current composites program by offering real world product and process expertise that will improve students’ skill sets for careers within the composites industry upon graduation.

The partnership will also focus on expanding students’ understanding of materials such as prepreg and thermoplastics, as well as processes such as out-of-autoclave and additive manufacturing.

 ‘Composites One is dedicated to the advancement of our industry,’ said Composites One President and COO Leon Garoufalis. ‘With this new partnership, we can help prepare the next generation of composites professionals, as well as ensure that more of our industry’s existing workforce is educated on the latest composites technologies.’
