Today ALTHEORA COMPOSITES supports the processing of composite materials in numerous domains, split into four sectors:

Aeronautics

Our technical sophistication helps us produce parts that respect advanced engineering characteristics, from shielding to lightness and non-corrosiveness, parts with a painted appearance, as well as integrating functions and controllers.

Railways

We work with the market leaders to supply railway equipment and embedded equipment that meets strict qualifications in terms of fire, smoke, mechanical and dielectric properties, wear, impermeability, insulation, signaling, etc.

Motorized
Equipment

Using our compression presses that can exert a force of up to 2,000 metric tons, we produce aerodynamic parts, car body parts, interior structural/semi-structural parts (floorboard, hood, engine compartment bulkhead, etc.) in significant volume, even offering a reliable alternative to steel or aluminum.

Sports, Recreation,
Marine & Medical

We develop products that meet more specific requirements, such as sporting equipment, medical equipment (sterilization stations, sanitary facilities, etc.), recreation and marine equipment (pool walls, marine furniture, etc.).
