CCS, having its strength in composites engineering and, amongst others, fiber placing technology, processing and engineering materials will be fortifying the engineering side of Eco-Space, strong in development and deployment of natural fiber technology and green technology. To enable both companies product development potential into products, Sakura Tech, an established manufacturing company specialised in precision parts and tooling technology, has stepped in as a manufacturing partner to deliver a comprehensive technology portfolio to prospects and clients. 
This will be enabling clients to have a single point of contact for the development and realisation of complex engineering materials and structural components, even in natural materials. 

CCS, Eco-Space and Sakura Tech will from now on intensify the collaboration and create innovation platforms to cross pollinate shared technology and accelerate innovation in them.

CCS invited to 1st Global Carbon Cluster Forum in Korea

Jeonju, 6-8 October 2015: Dr. Florian Doetzer was invited by Ha-Jin Song, the Governor of Jeollabuk-do Province in South Korea, to speak at the first Global Carbon Cluster Forum together with other international key figures of the composites community. The event coincided with the 10th International Carbon Festival in Jeonju.

The forum brought leaders from global composite consortia, clusters and institutes together. The talks highlighted the necessity of collaboration between companies and universities on an international level. Significant investments have been made recently by various national governments to support their regional composites ecosystems. An important mission of all those initiatives is to close the "valley of death" between scientific research and industrial operations.

Dr. Doetzer presented Singapore's perspective on these points and highlighted CCS's priorities on automated composite manufacturing and the integration of composite design and composite manufacturing.

The event was supported by the local government and demonstrated the determination of Korean industry to develop composite technologies in support of their domestic players. The participants embarked on a trip to KC-Tech and Hyosung, witnessing the expanding competencies of Korea's Jeonju Carbon Valley area.

The first joint activities target composite pressure vessels as well as special materials for composite structures with applications in aircraft interior, automotive and consumer products. In addition, the parties will collaborate on market access and outreach activities, as well as development of training programs and standardization of carbon composite technology education / training in Asia.
CCS and LZS had the opportunity to sign in the historic “Bienenkorb” in the Saxonian state chancellery, witnessed by Singapore’s Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong and the Minister President of Saxony (Germany), Stanislaw Tillich.
