Teijin Carbon America, Inc.
Teijin Carbon is one of the world’s leading manufacturers of carbon fiber products. We are present in Asia, Europe and America, with now an office in Montreal. We offer innovative solutions and high performance products for a variety of applications and industries. Since the 80s, we produce Tenax® carbon fibers – filament yarns and short fibres. In the last decade, we developed innovative semi-finished products to improve the process chain – from carbon fibre to part – and reduce cycle times and waste. We are an historical player in Aerospace as a leading supplier of carbon fiber and we have a very important focus in Aerospace market as a material supplier. Our added value in the Aerospace supply chain is therefore to work on new carbon fiber development and as well on new semi-products based on carbon fiber like for example thermoset and thermoplatics prepregs as well as textiles. In this role, we want to participate in the R&D efforts in Canada in order to introduce new materials and new processes, with the ultimate goal of supporting the Canadian Aerospace industry.
Note: Teijin Carbon was until March 2018 Toho-Tenax, already part of the Teijin group. The product brand name stays Tenax®.
