Quickstep contract to open up
South Korean automotive market
Quickstep Holdings announces its entry
into the South Korean automotive market
through a new sales contract with the Korea Institute of Science and Technology
(KIST). Quickstep will develop and supply composite manufacturing equipment,
including its patented Resin Spray Transfer (RST) and Qure (Out-of-Autoclave)
curing machine technologies, which KIST
will use to develop prototype, demonstrator and niche-volume composite parts.
Delivery is expected to be completed by
the end of 2016 and will pave the way for
further adoption of Quickstep's technologies in the growing South Korean
automotive sector. KIST selected the
Quickstep system after evaluating several
processes. Quickstep's Qure and RST
technology will enable KIST to produce
Class-A surface quality parts at an overall
lower cost, and will demonstrate the
benefits of the system for industry uptake
in the Korean market.

Acquisition

Nordex and Acciona Windpower
join forces to create a major
player in the wind industry
Nordex is acquiring Corporación
Acciona Windpower S.L. from
Acciona S.A. to form a new major player
in the wind industry. Nordex and Acciona
Windpower complement each other in a
number of important areas. Nordex has a
strong market position in Europe, while
Acciona Windpower is well-positioned in

Faurecia sells its
Automotive Exteriors Business
to Plastic Omnium
The transaction concerns the bumpers
and front end modules business of Faurecia which had sales of €2 billion in 2015
and employs 7,700 people in 22 sites.
The Entreprise Value of the transaction
is €665 million. The company signs the
definitive agreement (Sales and Purchase
Agreement) for the sale of its Automotive
Exteriors Business to Plastic Omnium
following the completion of the information and consultation procedures with the
relevant employee representatives.

Expansion

Superior Composites
announces a $2.5 million
expansion at its Kentucky facility
Executives from Superior Composites joined state economic development and local officials in Vanceburg,
Kentucky, to mark the start of a $2.5
million expansion. It is expected to create
32 new full-time jobs at the company's
glass reinforcements production facility.
The project comes less than a year after
Superior Composites was spun off as an
independent business and will position
the company for long-term growth. The
plant produces continuous filament glass
fiber reinforcements and veils used in a
variety of markets in the global composites industry. Customers use its products
to make automotive and transportation
components, specialty pipe for oil, gas
and chemicals transmission, composite
window and door frames, marine components and many other end-use products.
Superior Composites will add 20,000
square feet to its existing facility for a total
of 156,000 square feet.

This sale, combined with the early
redemption by Faurecia of its convertible
bond that was completed in January 2016,
will almost completely eliminate Faurecia's debt. The group will thus be able
to accelerate investment in value-added
technologies for sustainable mobility and
enhanced life on board. The composite
business of Faurecia is an integral part of
its technology strategy for lightweight
solutions and is thus not included in the
deal with Plastic Omnium.

IDI Composites
International joint venture with
SMC Composites in Mexico
The newly named company, IDI
Composites International Mexico,
will focus on expanding IDI's footprint and
bring the number of IDI's global manufacturing facilities to seven. Demand for IDI's
proven line of Sheet Molding Compounds
(SMC) and Bulk Molding Compounds
(BMC) is at an all-time high and IDI's
newest product line, Structural Thermoset
Composites (STC), is meeting the need
for more advanced and higher performing
materials in applications requiring high
strength and low density. IDI recently
completed a multi-million dollar expansion
and upgrade of their Noblesville (USA)
manufacturing facility and corporate
headquarters. With state-of-the-art manufacturing facilities currently in operation in
Mexico City, IDI Composites International
Mexico will better serve the growing manufacturing base in Mexico and it also opens
up markets in Central and South America.

the Americas and emerging markets. Nordex products are particularly well-suited
for complex projects subject to technical
restrictions, while Acciona Windpower's
products are primarily aimed at large-scale
wind farms that require efficient and sturdy machines for unconstrained terrains.
The purchase price for Acciona Windpower is comprised of a cash payment in the
amount of EUR 366.4 million and 16.1
million new Nordex shares valued at EUR
26.00 each. Nordex SE will remain a listed
company according to German law with
its head office remaining domiciled in
Hamburg.
