Company Overview

We were founded in 1968 and have been providing composite wind blades since 2001. Our knowledge and experience of composite materials and manufacturing originates with our predecessor company, Tillotson Pearson Inc., a leading manufacturer of high-performance sail and powerboats along with a wide range of composite structures used in other industrial applications.

We are a leading wind-blade manufacturer and accounted for approximately 18% of all sold onshore wind blades on a MW-basis globally in 2019. We reached a new high this year with over $1.4 billion in net sales and more than 9,500 wind blades sold. We enable many of the industry’s leading wind turbine original equipment manufacturers (OEMs), who have historically relied on in-house production, to outsource the manufacturing of some of their wind blades.

We are headquartered in Scottsdale, Arizona, and we have expanded our global footprint to include domestic facilities in Newton, Iowa; Warren, Rhode Island; and Santa Teresa, New Mexico and international facilities in Dafeng, China; Taicang Port, China; Yangzhou, Jiangsu, China; Kolding, Denmark; Chennai, India; Juarez, Mexico; Matamoros, Mexico; and Izmir, Turkey.

Our advanced manufacturing facilities are strategically located around the world to serve the growing global wind market in a cost-effective manner. We also leverage our advanced composite technology and innovation to supply unique, high-strength, lightweight and durable composite product solutions to the transportation market, including passenger automotive, bus, truck, and delivery vehicle applications.
The wind blades that we manufacture support the decarbonization of energy production, provide significant reductions in greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, and help mitigate climate change. Over the last 5 years, the wind blades we have sold have the potential to reduce more than 980 million metric tons of CO2 over their average 20-year life span.1 This is equivalent to the use of more than 200 million passenger vehicles for one year in the U.S.2
