*The carbon fiber and advance composites industry is expecting rapid growth in the next 10 yrs.
*The carbon fiber and advanced composites industry is somewhat fragmented today due to this rapid growth & expanding interest across non-traditional industrial segments.
*CAG works to join consortium partners with these non-traditional industrial segments to introduce technology solutions, composite concepts and design solutions in a “one stop shop” model.
*CAG will involve raw materials companies, resin companies, equipment technology companies, manufacturing companies and research and development specialists to give our target customer base with a broad base of materials, equipment and process expertise.
*CAG intends to accomplish this in the following manor:
1)We provide member companies a network of qualified business contacts at an executive / R&D level that have committed interest and resources into developing composite solutions.
2)CAG will act as a resource to member companies and customers to determine the best materials and process solutions for their developing composite needs.
3)CAG will assist member companies and customers in part concepting, process design and prototyping with dedicated in house design resources.
4)CAG will also act as a networking solution to link member companies together which in turn will broaden our member companies customer base and market presence
5)CAG member companies will collectively be involved in the initial R&D with the customer to develop composite concepts. This will lead to positioning CAG members for new business opportunities as these products / processes move from concept to mass production.
6)CAG will also act as a marketing arm by displaying member technologies in major trade shows and technology reviews with major OEM customers.
*CAG intends to be the link between this emerging technology market and the customer base that has limited knowledge but significant interest in developing composite solutions for their changing product needs.
