Composites One Works To Broaden Public’s Awareness Of Composites


Composites One, a distributor of composite materials, has partnered with the American Composites Manufacturers Association on a grassroots effort to make lawmakers aware of the role played by the composites industry in the U.S. economy, including the wind industry.

The effort kicked off last week when Reps. Donald A. Manzullo, R-Ill., and Joe Walsh, R-Ill., met with Composites One representatives. The purpose of their visit was to gain a better understanding of the composites industry, which accounts for more than 13,000 jobs and $2 billion of economic activity in Illinois alone, according to the company.

‘Thanks to our meeting with Congressman Manzullo, we hope to expand upon that support and increase recognition so that the public understands the valuable role that composites play in everyday life,’ says Leon Garoufalis, president and chief operating officer for Composites One.
