支持增长

新工厂是Hexcel正在进行的全球投资的一部分,旨在创建多元化和强大的全球供应链,以支持航空航天客户对碳纤维复合材料日益增长的需求。自2015年以来,Hexcel已在全球各地投资,主要是为了支持复合材料需求的增长以及空客(A350 XWB)和赛峰(CFM国际LEAP发动机)等航空航天工业项目的开发。

Hexcel总裁,欧洲/亚太/中东/非洲航空航天公司总裁Thierry Merlot表示:“通过这家工厂,我们正在满足航空航天客户的需求以及他们对碳复合材料不断增长的需求。该网站已经收到了第一个航空航天认证。“

区域足迹

总部位于Osiris化学工业平台的Hexcel选择了该地点,因为它靠近Hexcel客户,其他Hexcel工厂,其优质的基础设施和卓越的运营,以及法国具有价格竞争力的电力供应。

与Hexcel在Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes地区的现有工厂,欧洲最大的碳纤维织造工厂LesAvenières以及预浸料织物和碳纤维制造商Dagneux合作,新工厂将创造一个全球生态系统 - 从碳纤维到树脂浸渍织物(称为预浸料)的整个生产链中的性能复合材料部门。

高效的就业和培训体系

2014年,Hexcel与法国国家职业介绍所Pôlemployi签署了区域主协议,通过实施工作模拟招聘(MRS),为其在奥弗涅 - 罗纳 - 阿尔卑斯地区的工厂支持其开发和雇用200多名员工。

梅洛先生说:“Hexcel近年来变得更具吸引力。Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes地区提供培训支持。新员工接受了定制的培训课程,包括在美国和西班牙的Hexcel工厂进行现场培训。“

增加研发投资

梅洛先生补充说:“今天,由于有机增长和互补技术的获得,我们能够投资于生产能力。最近的收购和合作使我们能够实现多样化并获得新技术解决方案,如增材制造,粘合剂,拉挤成型工艺和热塑性塑料。为此,今年我们与阿科玛签署了战略合作伙伴关系,开发碳纤维增强热塑性塑料,并在法国建立了一个新的联合研发部门。“

位于HexcelLesAvenières工厂的3,500平方米研发中心计划于2019年第一季度推出。该中心将专注于新工艺和非高压釜技术。这将支持高性能复合材料的创新,并继续扩大其在航空结构应用的复合材料中的市场份额。

梅洛先生说:“我们正在进入一个高度活跃的研发阶段,以便为未来的发动机和飞机设计新一代材料和工艺。”

       Hexcel Officially Opens New Plant in France to Meet Growing Demand for Advanced Composites

Hexcel has officially opened its new plant at the Les Roches-Roussillon Chemicals Industry Platform in Isère, France. Attending the event were Muriel Pénicaud, French Labor Minister, Yannick Neuder, Vice-President of the Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes region for higher education, research, innovation and European funding, and Nick Stanage, Hexcel Chairman, CEO and President, as well as local dignitaries, Hexcel customers, and media representatives.

The new 37-acre plant is the company’s first first combined precursor and carbon fiber plant outside the United States. Four years after the project launch, the site is operational and increasing Hexcel’s global carbon fiber production capacity. Hexcel invested 200 million Euros in the plant that will generate 120 direct and 250 indirect jobs. Hexcel’s workforce in France has now risen to 1,200 people with more than 1,000 employees located in the Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes region.

SUPPORTING GROWTH

The new facility is part of Hexcel’s ongoing worldwide investment to create a diversified and robust global supply chain to support aerospace customers’ growing demand for carbon fiber composites. Since 2015, Hexcel has invested in all its locations worldwide, largely to support the growing demand for composites and the development of aerospace industry programs such as Airbus (A350 XWB) and Safran (CFM International LEAP engine).

Thierry Merlot, Hexcel President, Aerospace — Europe/Asia-Pacific/Middle East/Africa, said: “With this plant, we are responding to the needs of aerospace customers and their growing demand for carbon composite materials.The site has already received its first aerospace certifications.”

REGIonAL FOOTPRINT

based at the Osiris Chemicals Industry Platform, the location was chosen by Hexcel due to its proximity to Hexcel customers, other Hexcel sites, its quality infrastructure and operational excellence, and the availability of competitively priced electricity in France.

Operating in synergy with Hexcel’s existing sites in the Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes region, Les Avenières, the biggest carbon fiber weaving plant in Europe, and Dagneux, manufacturer of prepreg fabrics and carbon fibers, the new plant will create a global ecosystem for the high-performance composite materials sector covering the entire production chain from carbon fiber to resin-impregnated fabrics called prepreg.

EFFICIENT EMPLOYMENT AND TRAINING SYSTEMS

In 2014, Hexcel signed a regional master agreement with Pôle emploi, the French national employment agency, to support its development and hire over 200 employees for its sites in the Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes region through the implementation of job simulation recruitment (MRS).

Mr. Merlot said: “Hexcel has become more attractive in recent years. The Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes region has provided support with training. New employees have received customized training courses, including onsite training at Hexcel facilities in the United States and Spain.”

INCREASED INVESTMENT IN R&D

Mr. Merlot added: “Today we are able to invest in production capacity thanks to both organic growth and the acquisition of complementary technologies. Recent acquisitions and partnerships have enabled us to diversify and acquire new technology solutions such as additive manufacturing, adhesives, pultrusion processes and thermoplastics. For this purpose, this year we signed a strategic partnership with Arkema to develop carbon fiber-reinforced thermoplastics and set up a new joint research and development unit in France.”

The launch of a 3,500m2 R&D center at the Hexcel Les Avenières site is scheduled for the first quarter of 2019. The center will focus on new processes and out-of-autoclave technologies. This will support innovations in high-performance composites and continue to grow its market share in composite materials for aerostructure applications.

Mr. Merlot said: “We are entering a highly active phase of research and development in order to design new generation materials and processes for the engines and aircraft of tomorrow.”
