Web Industries to Purchase Seattle-area Land for New Aerospace Composite Materials Processing Plant

May 21, 2019 – Prompted by increasing demand for precision formatted composite materials for the Boeing 777X and by the aerospace industry’s burgeoning growth in the Pacific Northwest, Web Industries has signed a letter of intent with East Forty LLC to purchase 12 acres of land for a manufacturing plant in Marysville, Wash., north of Seattle. The site is near Boeing’s final assembly plant in Everett, Wash. and in proximity to material supplier Toray’s processing facility in Tacoma, Wash.

The new facility will occupy 75,000 square feet and house Web’s proprietary composites slitting and winding technology, as well as 9,000 square feet of refrigerated warehousing. Refrigeration at minus 10 F is necessary to ensure the chemical stability of some raw composite materials before final processing. Future capabilities include development services and product cutting and kitting. Groundbreaking is scheduled for spring 2019. The plant will be operational once the building is constructed, equipment is qualified and employees are trained, all targeted for January 2021.

According to Web Industries President and Chief Executive Officer Mark Pihl, the plant’s physical location positions Web to earn additional aircraft business in the region.

“The Pacific Northwest is the largest aerospace manufacturing center in the world,” Pihl notes. “Washington alone has more than 1,400 aerospace-related companies and a rapidly expanding ‘space cluster’ of high-growth enterprises. Our new plant investment has Web Industries perfectly located to grow right along with these businesses.” $150,000 state grant The Washington State Department of Commerce has provided a $150,000 grant from Governor Jay Inslee’s economic development strategic reserve fund to support the new facility’s location.

“We are proud to welcome Web Industries to the leading global aerospace industry hub here in Washington,” says Governor Inslee. “The company’s significant planned investments in Snohomish County are a tremendous addition to one of the most robust carbon fiber composite manufacturing clusters anywhere in the world.”

Marysville Mayor Jon Nehring adds: “I am delighted to welcome Web Industries to the Arlington Marysville Manufacturing Industrial Center. This investment adds 75 new jobs in Marysville and will undoubtedly attract other employers who value available land and infrastructure at a more affordable rate than that of most of the Puget Sound.”

Patrick Pierce, president and CEO of Economic Alliance Snohomish County, notes that Web Industries is the first sizeable composites formatter in the Seattle area. “Web’s commitment to the region is the first significant one by a materials formatter in the carbon fiber space, and we expect others to follow,” Pierce says. “Aerospace has been the center of our industrial activity for decades, and the adoption of composite materials for the Boeing 787 and now the 777X broadens our regional supply chain. We also anticipate that Web’s expertise will have applications in industries outside of aerospace. Our interactions with Web executives over the past months have been most professional and we look forward to having them join our leadership community.” About Web Industries A 100% employee-owned company, Web Industries, Inc., is one of the largest and most diverse providers of precision converting and outsource manufacturing, and the leading independent formatter of composite materials for Aerospace.

Web Industries to Build Seattle-area Composites Formatting Plant that will Speed Slit Tapes Delivery to Boeing

May 21, 2019 – Aerospace original equipment manufacturers (OEM) in the U.S. Pacific Northwest will soon have a nearby source of precision-formatted composite materials from Web Industries Inc. The company has unveiled plans for a new plant near Seattle that will help aerospace manufacturers, including Boeing, to optimize supply chains and dramatically cut shipping time and inventory.

Situated on 12 acres in Marysville, Wash., the new production facility will supply composite slit tape for the Boeing 777X and position Web to provide responsive formatting services to other businesses in the region.

The plant is expected to be operational in January 2021 following construction, equipment qualification and employee training. It is located close to Boeing’s final assembly plant in Everett, Wash., and supplier Toray Composite Materials America’s (CMA) processing facility in Tacoma, Wash.

“Our new composites formatting facility is the realization of our commercial commitment to Toray and Boeing,” says Web Industries President and CEO Mark Pihl. “By providing localized manufacturing to support the 777X, Boeing and Toray are expected to see improved affordability and sustainable competitive advantages. There are benefits associated with lower transportation, packaging and inventory costs, as well as reduced lead times. We look forward to the innovation and continuous improvement focus that will come with close collaboration.”

The new plant will reduce freight transportation time between Web and Boeing facilities to less than 30 minutes and to roughly two hours between Web and Toray. The materials currently make a cross-country journey by freezer truck.

Boeing could realize additional benefits via inventory savings. Web now ships formatted tapes to Boeing twice per month. When the new plant is operational, smaller shipments will be delivered as often as twice per day, which will require less handling and storage at Boeing. The expectation is to achieve a just in time service model.

Toray, too, will enjoy advantages associated with Web’s new nearby location. “Web has been a long-standing partner of Toray and enabled us to expand our product portfolio of advanced materials with great results, says Don Myers, director of aerospace sales, Toray CMA. “We look forward to continuing our work with Web Industries as they start up their facility in Marysville.”

Groundbreaking is scheduled this spring for the manufacturing site, which will house:

• 75,000 square feet for Web’s custom-built precision slitting, winding and spooling operations; • 9,000 square feet of refrigerated warehousing for stable storage of composite material pre-impregnated with thermosetting resin (prepreg); and • Space to add product development and composite material ply cutting and kitting services.

“Web will profit by adding value to our existing products and services and gaining entrée to new business opportunities with aerospace manufacturing companies throughout the Northwest region,” says Pihl. “With our technical resources based locally, we will offer the ability to collaborate on new business development and help our customers enable their own growth strategies.”

Refrigeration of prepreg composite materials at minus 10 F (minus 23.3 C) is necessary to prevent premature chemical cross-linking, which would render materials impossible to process
