By Mary Page Bailey |

Mitsubishi Chemical Corp. (MCC; Tokyo; www.m-chemical.co.jp/) announced that it will acquire a German manufacturer of carbon-fiber prepreg materials,  c-m-p GmbH (Heinsberg, Germany) through its subsidiary, Mitsubishi Chemical Advanced Material, in a move to strengthen its presence in the carbon-fiber composite material business. The closing of the acquisition will be in February 2020.

C-m-p produces unidirectional/fabric prepreg and provides solutions to various markets, particularly in the aerospace and automotive fields. With this acquisition, MCC will have prepreg plants in Europe, USA and Japan. In addition to the startup of MCC’s sheet-molding compound (SMC) production facility in Modena, Italy, MCC will enhance its capacity to produce carbon fiber composite materials in Europe, where the mobility markets are taking the lead in applications for advanced composite materials.uires carbon-fiber
