Toray plans composite material production expansion
Thursday, 3 August 2023
Accelerated expansion at Morgan Hill will support thermoset and Cetex thermoplastic production, as well as increasing technology laboratory capability and capacity in preparation for the market demand for materials.

Toray Advanced Composites, the advanced thermoplastic and thermoset composite materials expert, is expanding its Morgan Hill (CA, USA) plant operations. The new facility will add 74,000 square feet (6,800 square metres) to the existing campus facilities.

"We're growing our operations to meet the demand for quality advanced composites. This addition to our Toray facilities in Morgan Hill will dramatically increase capacity for aerospace, urban air mobility, defense, commercial, and industrial markets worldwide," says Scott Unger, Managing Director, USA, Global CTO.

In concert with other Toray announcements for carbon fibre and advanced composite business units around the globe, this accelerated expansion at the Morgan Hill location will support both thermoset and Cetex thermoplastic production, supply chain readiness, as well as increase technology laboratory capability and capacity in preparation for the surging market demand for materials.

This announcement follows Toray Advanced Composites' recent publication as the industry's first globally recognized thermoplastic prepreg manufacturing with Nadcap accreditation granted by the Nadcap Management Council and Toray Composite Materials America division investment in doubling carbon fibre production capacity.
