2017 has been another year of development and growth for Bindatex as our position as an international player in advanced materials formatting thrives.
Here are some highlights...
Investment in Capability
Specialist equipment is an essential requirement for the precision slitting of advanced materials. Consequently, through 2017 we have invested in a range of new technology. This enables Bindatex to both reinforce the quality and capacity of existing facilities and to offer new services. A key development has been the investment in die-cutting capability.

Expanding the Team
Making the most of advanced equipment requires a team of knowledgeable and highly skilled technicians. During 2017 Bindatex has taken on 2 additional slitting specialists who are key to our expansion plans for the coming year.
With Bindatex's growing emphasis on partnership and collaboration, especially relevant is that 2017 has seen a 40% increase in projects where we work closely with customers to deliver aerospace-qualified products and processes.
Spreading the word
With around 15,000 members including engineers, technologists and materials scientists, SAMPE (Society for the Advancement of Material and Process Engineering) provides a global forum for information, education and professional fellowship on materials and processes development.
The 'fit' between SAMPE and Bindatex is clear so we were pleased to have the opportunity to spread the word about our services and capabilities at both Cranfield University during the SAMPE UK and Ireland conference in February and also the SAMPE Europe Conference in Stuttgart during November.
2018 - what's next?
2018 is set to be another exciting year. In Q1, Bindatex is relocating to new and larger premises. Having outgrown our existing site, we look forward to the next phase of our expansion.
As well as further recruitment and investment in additional high-specification slitting and winding capacity, we aim to extend 2017's exhibition and presentation activity to connect even more widely across relevant technical sectors. At JEC World 2018 Bindatex will be showcasing our world-leading thermoplastic formatting capabilities.
We are confident that investment, hard work and collaboration will deliver success for us all in 2018.
