The CEO of Molded Fiber Glass Companies, a distinguished international composites manufacturer, has earned additional recognition while serving as honorary president of the recent JEC Composites tradeshow in Paris.
Richard Morrison opened the global show and served as a host for the awards ceremony. He also presented an overview of the fast-growing U.S. wind energy market, which Molded Fiber Glass (MFG) supports by manufacturing blades for wind turbines.
During the global show, MFG was cited as one of the most “innovative advanced composite enterprises in the United States.”
“As in other sectors, composite processors are currently under pressure, squeezed between raw material suppliers, who are hiking up their rates, and customers, who are holding out for better prices,” said Frédérique Mutel, president and CEO of the JEC Group, which promotes the use of composites worldwide.
“Some of them, like MFG, have adapted their strategy to market needs, concentrating their efforts on new materials that are lighter and stronger, and designing manufacturing processes that save on materials and reduce costs. MFG epitomizes the processing companies that have continuously reassessed their situation in order to adapt and develop successfully over the decades. MFG also serves as a good example as a company that has diversified its expertise to reach new markets and demonstrated its receptivity to customer needs.”
“What a great honor for us to be recognized on the world stage,” Morrison said. “All the accolades are made possible by innovative and dedicated employees committed to quality and customer service.”
