The AIC Singapore office has a dedicated 24/7 engineering capability and a small sales force. It will particularly target the composites industry, as the market in Asia is expected to contribute over half of worldwide composite production by 2015, with a current estimated value of almost $25 billion.

“The Far East is continuing to see powerful growth and the requirement for autoclaves and other composite process equipment, fuelled by the aerospace composites industry and its supply chains," reports Tony Toll, CEO of AIC.

"This provides a great opportunity for AIC to develop this market and represents a significant milestone in growth of the AIC Group.”

AIC Group comprises Autoclave & Industrial Controls (AIC), Rovic and Custom Coatings. The group provides worldwide support services to the advanced materials and process engineering industries.
