With 30+ years of composite product and process development experience behind us, you can rely on TCE to bring your product to market on time and budget.

You don’t need to reinvent the wheel. Design and analysis of composite structures are core competencies at TCE; however our true expertise is in process development.

In many instances, composite products are well analyzed and understood. The processes required to cost effectively, consistently fabricate composite products are less well understood by many companies – this is our area of expertise.

Automation and process control to reduce labor content and improve part-to-part consistency are the keys to cost effective production.
