Shape’s innovative spirit was on display at the 2017 CAMX—the premier composites and advanced materials event and for four days the center of the composites world. Shape was in attendance as a finalist for an Award for Composite Excellence (ACE), the composite industry’s stand out award showcase.
The ACE awards are an annual competition hosted by the American Composites Manufacturers Association (ACMA) that recognizes superiority in engineering and design, as well as improvements and innovation in equipment and manufacturing.
Shape was a finalist in the Infinite Possibility for Market Growth category for our use of curved pultrusion to create highly engineered hollow profiles. The award, which was taken home by Ford and Magna International for their work on a carbon fiber subframe, is presented to the composites product that demonstrates the potential to significantly increase the use of composites in existing markets or generate the greatest impact to open new and emerging markets for composites.
