New Autoclave Fully Installed and Operational

January 9, 2014

(Minden, NE) - Royal Engineered Composites is pleased to announce that their 12’x30’ autoclave is fully installed and operational. The installation and set-up process completed on October 14, 2013, and the clave adds a significant amount of excess capacity, both in size and number of cure cycles available for production.

The new autoclave, housed in Royal’s newest addition, is significantly larger than Royal’s five other autoclaves. In an effort to increase capacity and stay ahead of the growth curve, Royal procured long-lead materials for the autoclave in April of 2012. Preparation of Royal’s facilities began in March of 2013, and the autoclave arrived onsite in July.

As Royal looks ahead to increasing production, the company is placing importance on acquiring the resources necessary for the growth. According to Jarrod Ridge, Business Development Manager at Royal, “Royal has seen an increased number of potential opportunities from both current and prospective customers, and we are gearing up for an escalation in sales.”

Royal Engineered Composites offers complete design, manufacturing and prototyping services, as well as mold making and technical support for aerospace and defense companies. Royal is an outsource manufacturer of composite nacelle components, secondary aircraft structures, space and satellite applications, radomes, ECS ducting and more.

Until 2010, Royal was known by its original name of Royal Plastic. The change to Royal Engineered Composites reinforces Royal as an industry leader in the production of composite parts and more accurately represents the company's technical capabilities, state-of-the-art facilities, equipment, and expertise. Royal's goal is to use engineering expertise to create value and reduce costs for customers.
