Cobra forms new composite structures business unit

Cobra International, a leading manufacturer of advanced composite components for the water sports, automotive, marine and luxury sectors, has announced the launch of its new Cobra Composite Structures (CCS) business unit dedicated to the efficient manufacturing of large composite structures for the architectural and mass transport markets.

The new Cobra Composite Structures business unit has been created in response to strong customer demand for Cobra’s product development expertise, production efficiency and quality focus that are to be applied to large structural composite parts such as roofs, facades, bridges and large vehicle components for rail, bus and truck applications.

With lightweight advanced composites delivering design freedom and faster installation in architecture, as well as providing fuel savings and efficiency gains in transport applications, Cobra believes it is the perfect partner to support customers from initial design concept through to finished composite structure.

Delivering innovations

The CCS business unit will operate from dedicated facilities at Cobra’s 100,000m2 state of the art facilities in Thailand and will be fully integrated into Cobra’s operations. Headed up by Paul Scholten, who brings commercial and technical experience in all sectors of the composites industry to the new unit, CCS will also work closely with Cobra’s Design and Development team who are continuously delivering innovative production processes, sustainable material combinations and the highest quality decorative finishes.

Cobra holds both ISO 9001:2015 and ISO/TS 16949:2009 (Automotive) certifications. In addition, the company has recently committed significant research and development investment into fire resistant composites and sustainable materials – two important drivers in Cobra Composite Structures’ key markets.

Significant orders

Cobra Composite Structures is already working on a number of significant orders including the components for a specialist vehicle project to support airport ground operations, as well as light bridging solutions, and is looking forward to hearing from any new customers about their large composite structure projects.

Cobra and CCS will be present at the 10th JEC Asia composites platform, in Seoul, South Korea, from the 1-3 of November.
