Teijin steps up development of automotive CFRP & other composites
Jun '08
Teijin Limited announced that it will acquire a majority stake in GH Craft Ltd, a proven manufacturer with outstanding technologies in advanced composite materials, and establish the tentatively named TEIJIN Composites Innovation Center (TCIC) on the premises of GH Craft in Gotemba, Shizuoka Prefecture this July.

The center will integrate key R&D and marketing functions for advanced composites within the Teijin Group.

Teijin Group is actively involved in the development of carbon fiber reinforced plastics (CFRP) for automobiles, aircraft, marine vessels, industrial robots and wind power generators.

The new R&D center will enable Teijin to work in close collaboration with automotive manufacturers to develop CFRP components that offer improved functionality in terms of weight reduction and crashworthiness.
