Mass Transit Vehicle Components
Composites are widely used for mass transit vehicle components. We produce both interior and exterior parts for new construction and retrofits. Because our capabilities include a range of materials and processes, we can support specific requirements for fire retardancy, electrical conductivity, cosmetics, aerodynamics, durability and weight. Involvement in other demanding industries – automotive, truck, busses, recreational vehicles – bolsters the value we bring to manufacturers of railcars.
