Milan, [28/01/2021] with the acquisition of an equity interest, Plyform Composites officially joins ASTAB Engineering’s shareholding. The companies, which had already established a partnership, now undertake a stable cooperation in order to foster their mutual growth and strengthen their position in the highly competitive aerospace industry, with a deep focus on technical innovation.
Based in Varallo Pombia (NO), Plyform Composites is a company specialized in the supply of composite material structures. Since its inception, in the early 80’s, Plyform has chosen to address structural applications of advanced composite materials. This choice has allowed the company to work in all major industrial sectors. Since 1996, Plyform has focused its work mainly on the aeronautical and aerospace sectors.
The company’s strengths lie in its in-house capabilities with a major materials laboratory and state-of-the-art facilities for the production and assembly of composites. Thanks to a continuous investment program focused on human resources, the company counts on highly qualified personnel able to accompany customers in the development of projects and provide customized solutions to clients.
ASTAB Engineering S.r.l. is an engineering company based in Milan. Although recently established, ASTAB (acronym for Aeronautical, Space, Train, automotive and Boat) was founded by partners with over 30 years of experience in the aeronautical (both civil and military) and aerospace sectors.
ASTAB Engineering is able to work in all areas of projects, (design, structural analysis, fatigue and damage tolerance, cfd analysis, mechanical systems, etc). Also in ASTAB, what makes the difference, is the deep know-how of the staff, which has the skills to design and manage complex projects and is able to use the experience to find new and cutting-edge solutions that meet the needs of individual customers.
This operation consolidates an important synergy between the two companies, both founded on common values such as passion, commitment and quality: Plyform’s technological skills in the world of composites are combined with ASTAB’s know-how in the engineering sector. Innovation and performance maximization are the recipe to compete and become even more relevant in the international scene.
“We are very pleased to strengthen the relationship that binds the two companies, working to provide customers with the entire supply chain from engineering to product delivery,” says Mauro Banfi, CEO of ASTAB Engineering. Piero Vicendone, CEO of Plyform Composites is fully aligned: “our participation to ASTAB Engineering’s shareholding allows us to strengthen the partnership already in place, providing our customers with an integrated solution, based on product quality and innovation.”
