Argosy opens new facility to expand honeycomb core market

Argosy International Inc., a leading supplier of advanced composites and related materials to the global aerospace industry, has started construction of their new 39,000 square foot honeycomb core facility to be strategically located in Alabama close to the new Airbus and Boeing aero clusters in the Southeastern USA. Argosy's commercial grade aluminum honeycomb core is a noncombustible material manufactured in multiple cell sizes from 3/16” to 1” with two different density options for each cell size, and can be provided with both chrome and non-chrome coatings.

The new facility will be certified to ISO 9001 and features a carefully designed cutting room (vertical band saw), industrial dust collection system, and a staging area for material. Inventory locations will be dedicated for standard stock material (HOBE commercial grade 3000 and 5052 series) and customer specific stock material. To constantly monitor quality of product and produce expanded core product, an expander table will be installed. The configuration of the new space allows for future growth such as additional saws and room for inventory. Initially, the cutting room will be dedicated to serve panel manufacturers involved in the clean room, mass transport, marine, and building industries.

“Argosy Composite Advanced Materials (ACAM) allows Argosy to provide value-added honeycomb core cut to each customer's unique and exacting specifications,” according to Ryan Flugel, Vice President of Sales and Marketing at Argosy. “Our particular approach to the honeycomb business is focused solely on providing core. This facility greatly expands our capabilities and helps our customers enhance their manufacturing processes and increase their efficiency with proven and reliable honeycomb core solutions from Argosy.”

The facility will provide US panel manufacturers with a local manufacturer and distributor of honeycomb core products. Argosy will also provide a dedicated Customer Service team and value added services such as Vendor Managed Inventory (VMI) storage solutions, consignment opportunities, slotted core, and kitting services. Argosy is dedicated to providing efficient logistics with product kitting options for customers.
