Our Industrial business focuses on three key performance-driven market segments: Automotive, Energy (including wind, solar, oil, gas and nuclear power generation, and energy storage), and Recreation with an emphasis on Sports & Leisure and Marine. As designers of automobiles and sailing vessels are challenged with driving down CO2 emissions, lightweighting has become a priority. Hexcel products are driving weight reduction and promoting greater manufacturing efficiencies in support of these trends.
Our Industrial market segments are supported by Hexcel Official Distributors to reach all end users more effectively within geographical regions.
