JEC Innovation Award for 12 companies


During the first JEC Asia International Composites event, to be held 1-3 November, in Seoul, South Korea, 12 companies will be rewarded in several major application sectors: Aeronautics, Automotive, Construction, Marine, Racing car, Railway, Transportation, Wind Energy and Sports & Leisure. Like the rest of the world, the Asia-Pacific region is seeing major developments in carbon-SMC materials, lighter and safer cars and transportation systems, renewable energy, processes and raw materials. This could be seen through the numerous applications received in these topics.

“JEC Group strategy towards composites end-users appears to be truly appropriate when we notice all these industries represented in this list of winners. One can only notice that composites are now fully part of our everyday life and it is just the beginning,” says Frédérique Mutel, JEC Group President/CEO.

The ceremony will take place on Thursday November 2nd, 2017 at the COEX Center of Seoul (South Korea) in the conference room of JEC Asia level 1 from 3:30 p.m.
