Gurit wins first Tooling contract in Europe

This European order is another important achievement in the context of Gurit’s global Tooling strategy, following shipments of several blade moulds to European-controlled customers in China as well as the delivery of moulds to two customers in India in the current year 2010.

Red Maple, the Tooling Business of Gurit, has signed a first contract for a wind turbine blade mould to be delivered to a customer in Europe. The mould is developed and manufactured at the new production site of Red Maple in Taicang/PR China. This new production facility is especially designed for the manufacture of next-generation blade moulds for wind turbines of up to 7 MW.

Red Maple is the independent, fully-integrated and highly specialized leader in mould manufacturing offering attractively priced, solid quality tooling equipment at very short lead-times.

“The rising interest from international customers in our Tooling offering is very encouraging”, commented Rudolf Hadorn, CEO of Gurit.
