ANDERSON, S.C. (Jan. 28, 2008) — U.S. composites manufacturer TechFab L.L.C. has changed its name to Chomarat North America L.L.C.
Chomarat North America said it will consolidate both TechFab and Rovicore L.L.C. into a single commercial entity. Bruce Hinton, former vice president and general manager of TechFab, is now president of Chomarat North America.
Chomarat said the name change is consistent with its long-term strategy to increase business in the global reinforcement industry by providing unique solutions to customer needs.
Headquartered in Anderson, Chomarat North America manufactures Rovicore, a patented reinforcement complex for composites, among other reinforcement products for composites.
Chomarat also specializes in fabric and textile coating, using thermoplastic polyurethanes and thermoplastic olefins.
Groupe Chomarat, of Mariac, France, bought Hexcel Reinforcements' 50-percent share of TechFab in January 2007.
