Title:CEO
Primary Industry:Materials
Executive Summary:We\'re in the composites business. We make and sell acrylic based powders and pastes. Those products are mixed and packaged by contract manufacturers coincidentally our suppliers. Marketing and sales is via trade shows, trade publications, direct mail, the internet and two national distributors. The introduction of acrylic polymer thickeners to composites manufacture marks the beginning of a logical transition from segmented, low volume production to the industrialization that occurred in oil, steel, automobiles and electronics. Making composites on machines then molding and finishing parts on other assembly lines will lower unit costs, improve quality, widen distribution with deeper market penetration and new applications with a smaller environmental footprint. All direct results of acrylics variety, versatility, economics and safety.
