Tier 1 partners

We proudly present our Tier 1 partners. These partners have access to all the research generated in the field of thermoplastic composites and enjoy full voting rights in the Consortium Board. Would you like to know more about Tier 2 membership? Look here.

We believe that successful innovation is driven by a good fundamental understanding. Our understanding of material behavior in melt and the resulting unique characterization tests that we have created, for example, are well appreciated by numerous aerospace companies, whom we help to produce defect-free thermoplastic composite parts.

Is your company willing to get involved with thermoplastic composites? Feel free to fill in our contact form, we will make sure we will get in touch with you very quickly.

What do our members say about us?

DTC

Rene van der Burg, Sales Director – DTC

“DTC strongly supports TPRC. Our key driver is to gain a better understanding of the fundamentals of thermoplastic composites through collaboration with TPRC and its partners' to enable further expansion of thermoplastics in the aerospace industry.”

Collins Aerospace

Teresa Kruckenberg, R&D Director - Collins Aerospace

“TPRC and its consortium members are leaders in the industry for thermoplastic composite materials, processing and process simulation, and design for the manufacture of thermoplastic composite structures.”

Aviacomp

Sebastien Cochais, Industrial Manager - Aviacomp

“As thermoplastic materials pave the way for high-rates, cost-efficient and sustainable production processes, Aviacomp joins the TPRC to make use of its know-how and develop international research and technology partnerships, from upstream to applied research and product development. Through TPRC membership, Aviacomp is enhancing its position to support its customers for the technological revolution of future aircraft programs. TPRC expertise combined with our innovation DNA should lead us to tomorrow breakthroughs!"

Boeing

Alex Rubin, Senior Technical Fellow – Boeing Research & Technology

“Thermoplastic materials and processes enable us to reduce the weight and cost of aircraft components, and to produce composite components at a very high rate of production. This allows designers to explore new applications previously dominated by metallic components. I would describe research conducted at TPRC as World Class. Boeing’s collaboration with TPRC researchers results in a new generation of materials and processes, driving new applications for Boeing products.”



Aniform

Sebastiaan Haanappel, Managing Director – Aniform Engineering

“Our collaboration with TPRC researchers leads to matured, recognized, and standardized material characterization methods for forming simulations, which are eventually of great benefit to all our clients.”

Toray Advanced Composites

Frank Meurs, Managing Director - EMEA, Toray Advanced Composites

“The commercial adoption of thermoplastic composites requires the involvement and partnership of the complete supply chain. Over the past 10 years the TPRC has played a pivotal role in establishing a state-of-the-art manufacturing capability where Toray Advanced Composites can introduce new material concepts, and test the boundaries of process capability. We are very grateful to our TPRC partners and look forward to the future.”
