What is the aerospace market’s long-term outlook for composites?
The trend in the use of composites will naturally continue to grow, and therefore I focus our company on advanced composites as a core competency to grow within the industry.
What legislative issues will affect the aerospace industry?
There will be a need for greener aircraft. The aerospace industry needs to solve the problem of how to provide cleaner, quieter aircraft. It’s something they will have to build into their technology, and the composites industry has the ability to contribute to those solutions.
I’m also interested to see how Buy America affects our business, especially on the military side with government spending. Because of our company heritage in military applications and where we are in the economic cycle, I hope it will lead to a protection of technology and business here in America.
