Marlborough, Massachusetts — Web Industries Inc. has bought CAD Cut, Inc., and will combine the two US units to become a bigger provider of fabric cutting and kitting services for the aerospace, medical, and industrial fabrics markets.
Under the transaction, Web has purchased all CAD Cut assets, including the company name, and will continue to operate CAD Cut's facilities in Middlesex, Vermont, and Denton, Texas.
Web Industries claims to be a leader in custom manufacturing and development for flexible materials.
The company says Middlesex, Vermont-based CAD Cut utilises "the latest in computer-controlled laser and knife cutting systems, supply chain management services, and world class quality systems."
CAD Cut specialises in providing composite ply kits to its markets and also manufactures multilayer insulation blankets for cryogenic applications in medical devices as well as process aids for wind tunnel testing devices.
Privately held Web Industries provides commercial-scale, best-in-class outsource converting, manufacturing, and development services to a wide array of customers in the aerospace composites, consumer products, medical, and wire & cable markets.
In its announcement, Web Industries says "synergy between the two companies is especially strong in the aerospace sector, where Web is the recognized leader in providing precision composite slit tape for automated manufacturing, and CAD Cut has a strong background in providing precut and kitted material for hand layup of advanced composite parts."
Adding CAD Cut's ply-cutting and kitting abilities to Web Industries' proprietary composite slitting, spooling, chopping, and winding technologies will allow the expanded company to offer a full range of advanced composite-formatting solutions to the aerospace, automotive, and industrial markets.
