The KCMG Composites has been established in Taiwan to manufacture components and prepreg. It will have complementary facilities to the Irish plant to enable the rapid transfer of prototype designed and specified in Ireland. The Taiwan plant will have bulk production equipment and will mass produce components to the quality designs developed in Ireland. In addition, the Taiwan plant has a prepreg line, producing B Stage epoxy prepreg for the company. Investment has been made in complimentary equipment, having the same equipment specification as in Ireland, autoclaves, 5 axis machining, metrology and non-destructive test equipment. The Taiwan plant will also be supported by its own composites laboratory, which will undertake R&D in its own right with day-to-day composites quality control. The Taiwan plant will have full engineering support form the Irish headquarters with staff embedded to support the introduction of new product lines, and the transfer of production methods and processes to ensure a full compliance with agreed client specifications.
Our HOULI facility in Taiwan has a TOTAL WORKING AREA of 13,000m2 with a number of 30 working staff which will rise to 100 in mid-JUNE 2016.
