General Plastics expands product distribution in China through new agreement with East Wonder International, Inc.

General Plastics Manufacturing Company has named East Wonder International (EWI) its agent of choice in China's aerospace supplier market. East Wonder will import General Plastics' build-to-print flyaway materials for flight decks and interior cabins, providing distribution to original equipment manufacturers, and Tier 1 and Tier 2 companies in the mainland.

"East Wonder International, Inc. is widely recognized for its import and export trade expertise within the aviation industry in Asia, so we are thrilled to have them represent General Plastics to China's aviation producers," announced President Bruce Lind.

"China already represents the world's second-largest national air travel market, next to the United States, and its role is increasing in the global commercial aerospace market and supply chains," noted Lind. "This strategic alliance will help ensure that we are optimally positioned to capitalize on the explosive growth of the Chinese aerospace market that is projected to occur over the next 20 years."

EWI has built a strong local sales and service network in China, and is a well-established, authorized supplier for major Chinese airlines, aircraft manufacturing factories and aircraft maintenance bases. Its airline customers in China include Air China, China Eastern Airlines, China Southern Airlines, Shenzhen Airlines, Sichuan Airlines, Shandong Airlines, and Shanghai Airlines. Some of the aircraft manufacturers it serves there are Commercial Aircraft Corporation of China (COMAC), Xian Aircraft Corp., Chengdu Aircraft Corp., and China Aviation Industry General Aircraft Corp. (CAIGA).

After working with EWI for over a year, General Plastics was impressed with the distributor's extensive knowledge of the aerospace marketplace in China and its experience working with multiple vendors and SKUs.

"Our new agent agreement with East Wonder International accelerates General Plastics introduction to key players in the aerospace industry," Lind said. "New customers will benefit from responsive service and ready technical expertise to help them select, spec and use the right build-to-print material and parts for their particular application and project."

Continuing extension of company's aerospace capabilities

Lind expects demand for General Plastics' LAST-A-FOAM® FR-3700 and FR-6700 Aerospace-Grade Board Series to expand with increased distribution in the Chinese aerospace market. Both of these CFC-free, flame-retardant product lines are ideal for models and design prototypes; composite core; vacuum-form dies and mold patterns; and honeycomb edge closeout for aircraft interior sandwich panels (overhead stow bins, passenger cabin class dividers, galleys and lavatories).

In addition to supplying its signature LAST-A-FOAM® products, General Plastics machines and fabricates rigid and flexible foam materials into build-to-print parts to aerospace customer specifications.
