Azelis Composites business growth based on technical expertise and relationships

29 March 2011

Azelis Composites exhibited at at this year's JEC in Paris building on its strong customer and supplier relationships.

International Business Manager Serge Gradys explains: “The name Azelis may be new to the Composites market but our presence and recognised technical competence is not. The origins, of what has become one of the fastest growing International Business Areas for Azelis, go back to the mid 1970s through Arnaud, one of the founding members of Azelis, in France and Eastern Europe and also through Tradex Colori in Italy, which also later became part of the Azelis Group. We have used our long established relationships and considerable technical knowledge to significantly grow our presence across Europe in recent years.”

Azelis has more than 60 specialists working in the Composites IBA – 90% of whom have a technical background and around 50% have specialist composites expertise.

Sales have doubled into the traditional high volume composites sector over the past 3 years with the Nordic countries, UK and Benelux now well serviced by Azelis.

Serge Gradys continued: “Our rapid growth is testament to our main corporate Principals’ belief in our technical ability to service even the largest customers. We are able to offer practical support on new development applications and often work in a 3-way partnership with customers and key suppliers.”

In addition to the three main product groups; resins, glass fiber and organic peroxides, Azelis offers a wide portfolio of additional products plus machinery and equipment.

Azelis Composites is currently looking to significantly grow its business in the Spain and Portugal regions.
