Albany Engineered Composites (AEC) designs, develops and manufactures advanced composite components. Our core strength is our ability to produce highly tailored, complex composite parts, with a focus on 3D woven, resin transfer moulded composites. Our products often enable our customers to use lightweight, high-performance composites in applications where they previously have not been able to.
One of the great benefits of using composites to replace metal components is related to fuel efficiency. When a composite replaces a metal part in equipment that requires fuel to operate, the composite can enable that equipment to use less fuel. This is most apparent in cases such as planes and cars; when heavy metal components are replaced by lighter composite parts, such as those AEC produces, the car or plane has less weight to carry and can use less fuel.
AEC is a subsidiary of Albany International Corp. and shares its mission to deliver differentiating products and service with the highest quality and reliability. AEC is headquartered in Rochester, New Hampshire, home to both research and technology activities and production facilities.
