VELOX a pan-European distributor of raw material specialities and solution provider for the plastics and composites industries, is pleased to announce a new distribution partnership with Ilium Composites, a  manufacturer of unique and innovative glass reinforcements for closed mould and speciality applications.

In order to maximise market penetration and ensure first class service to all customers, Ilium recognised the need to collaborate with a partner that has a broad network, highly technical sales teams and a professional customer service reputation. Upon announcing the partnership, Colin  Leatham-Locke, Ilium Composites Business Development  Manager, commented, “We are delighted to join forces with  VELOX, a company with a long and successful history in European distribution. This is a vital step in the growth of Ilium’s regional sales and it was a natural choice after meeting with the VELOX team. Both companies share a vison and culture which will ensure long term, mutual success and continued product innovation, in a market which demands the very highest levels of product quality and service”.

Ilium Composites develops and manufactures the advanced fibreglass reinforcements using a new and unique process technology that has been patented. One product range is dedicated to Closed  Mould  Processes  (RTM,  Light-RTM,  Press),  another  range  is  devoted  to  the Pultrusion  process.

The  specific  reinforcements  are being  applied  by  customers  in  the transportation, construction, recreational and alternative energy industries.
