JSB Group makes core material kits for wind turbine blades and has seven kitting operations in Denmark, Spain, Turkey, the US and China with a new facility planned to be built in Mexico. The Group is headquartered in Denmark. It employs around 560 employees and expects to generate an annual turnover of around CHF 120 million in 2018.

Gurit says that the acquisition will allow the company to offer wind energy OEMs a full range of structural core materials, core material kits and wind turbine blade molds.

JSB will be formed into new Gurit business unit for kitting solutions.
