Composites One has completed its purchase of Solvay’s process materials business.

The acquired business has been rebranded as Aerovac and will make process materials and tooling used in prepreg processing, vacuum infusion, glass lamination, and other industrial applications, the company said.

The business has locations in Santa Fe Springs, California; Sumner, Washington; Keighley, UK; Mondovi, Italy and Toulouse, France with a UK-based distribution business, Med-Lab, which trades in aircraft engine overhaul consumables and fuel testing instruments.  

‘Aerovac is a natural, strategic extension of Composites One’s business,’ said Steve Dehmlow, CEO. ‘It positions us for future growth, and further establishes Composites One as a major supplier to the aerospace, wind energy and marine markets.’
