JEC World 2022

Our research representative attended JEC World 2022. JEC World is the global trade show for composite materials and their applications. Held in Paris, it is the industry’s leading event, hosting all the major players in a spirit of innovation, business and networking. The trade show is the “place to be” for composites with hundreds of product launches, awards ceremonies, startup competition, conferences, live demonstrations, innovation planets and networking opportunities.

He attended the event and felt that Bcomp is one of the most impressive companies in the event. Bcomp is the leading solutions provider for natural fiber reinforcements in high performance applications from race to space.

The company started as a garage project in 2011 with a mission to create lightweight yet high performance skis. The bCores™ were launched and successfully adopted by some of the biggest names in freeride skiing. The founders, material science PhDs from EPFL, used flax fibers to reinforce the balsa cores and improve shear stiffness. Impressed by the excellent mechanical properties of flax fibers, the development to create sustainable light-weighting solutions for the wider mobility markets started.

Today, Bcomp is a leader in natural fiber composites for sustainable light-weighting. Their solutions are found from sports and motorsports to automotive interiors, luxury sailing yachts, bridges and satellite panels.

They believe in providing solutions, combining product performance with deep engineering knowledge, marketing communications and customer support all the way from idea to final product.
