Turkish company Metyx Group has installed new warp knitting production lines to provide 12,000 metric tonnes of additional glass and carbon fibermultiaxial fabric knitting capacity.

The new capacity will increase production both in Turkey, expanding its main factory at Manisa, as well as for additional overseas manufacturing facilities, the company says.

The wind energy sector is reportedly a key strategic market for Metyx, which in recent years has made capital investments as part of an ongoing long-term program to invest in production facilities for technical textiles and composites-related products to serve this sector and other composites markets needing technical fabrics.
