Microtex Composites is a company belonging to the historical Becagli group that has specialized in the textile production since the end of the second world war. Microtex was founded in 1990 for the production of traditional fabrics, such as microfibers, and coated materials and gradually joined this activity with the innovative idea of composite materials.
Nowadays the group consists of two companies: the original company dedicated to the production of traditional fabrics and Microtex Composites S.r.l. specialized in the manufacture of structural and aesthetic composites, both dry and prepreg.
Today the company is a European excellence for carbon fibre manufactures widely used for structural parts, exterior panels and carbon look interiors for motorsports, automotive, marine, rail and aerospace. Carbon fibre manufactures are also successfully applied to building, industrial and interior design sectors.
Microtex Composites boasts cutting-edge technologies and ultimate chemical research laboratories. The production capacity is over 2.500.000 square meters/year of carbon fibre materials divided in the production site in Prato and the new operational headquarter in Pistoia (both located a few kilometres from Florence). The new 8.000 sqm-area houses offices, 5-line production departments and weaving. Furthermore, a new state of the art refrigerator area: one of the largest on the market, able to store 180.000 sqm of prepregs.
From the beginning of March 2021, a new headquarter has been settled in the UK, to oversee an important target market for Microtex Composites. To lead the new facility, the company has appointed Michael Stevenson who has over twenty-year experience in the composite sector.
“In such challenging times we made an alternative choice: to enhance our sales force abroad and be even more close to our customers. Customization is our strength and we can achieve it thanks to direct contacts with our sales partners” says Gianfranco Meschini (Director of Sales).
“We are delighted to be exhibiting at the 2021 Advanced Engineering show on 3rd & 4th November 2021, after such a difficult past year. We are excited to showcase our wide product offer covering all market sectors. Most recently we have new materials focused on sustainability. Furthermore, we also have a newly commission state of the art SMC line, giving our customers our even more choice in terms of material selection and hybrid formatting. For our UK customer base many of our products are available from our direct UK warehouse. Please visit our stand N50 (hall 3) to find out more.” says Michael Stevenson.
