Turkish company buys US-based composite producer


Turkish tire and construction reinforcement Kordsa has bought the U.S.-based composite material producer Axiom Materials for $181 million.

Kordsa — a subsidiary of Turkey‘s leading conglomerate Sabancı Holding — said in a press release on July 24 that the latest move raised its potential for creating new products.

Previously, Kordsa bought another three U.S. companies — Fabric Development, Textile Products and Advanced Honeycomb Technologies — over the last two years.

Ali Çalışkan, the CEO of Kordsa, said the company will start to reinforce planes’ engines after their tires, wings and bodies thanks to Axiom Materials‘ technology.
