Kenway Composites specializes in custom composite manufacturing and field service. The company is strategically positioned to serve customers by offering complete composite engineering and design capabilities bringing both standard items as well as “one-off” unique molded fabrications from the design phase, through the manufacturing phase, to the final on-site installation.
Custom work and customer service are what distinguish Kenway, as it manufactures products for industries such as marine, coal-fired power, infrastructure, pulp and paper, transportation, and renewable energy. What links the company’s various business lines are its technologically advanced manufacturing techniques, the products manufactured for exacting service applications, and the highest quality assurance procedures and processes.
Founded in 1947 Kenway Composites is built on a foundation of innovation. The company was an early convert to fiberglass materials and started applying its composites expertise to more demanding corrosion applications for Heavy Industrial customers. Over the last 50-years, Kenway has remained at the forefront of composites manufacturing, specializing in the design, engineering, manufacturing, and installation of open-molded, filament wound and vacuum infused composites structures.
Kenway’s industrial manufacturing expertise focuses on five primary markets: Heavy Industry; Highway Infrastructure; Waterfront Infrastructure; Government & Military; and Specialty Products applications. What links the company’s various business lines is technologically advanced manufacturing techniques, products manufactured for exacting service applications, and the highest quality assurance procedures and processes.
In March 2017 Kenway Composites was acquired by Creative Pultrusions, Inc., who itself is a subsidiary of Hill & Smith Holdings PLC. This international PLC Group maintains leading positions in the design, manufacturing, and supply of infrastructure and utility products as well as galvanizing services. The group’s success is driven by a strategy of innovation, product development, and international expansion, alongside a highly entrepreneurial management culture. The Creative Pultrusions Group of companies are world leaders in the composites industry.
With in-house design and testing capabilities and a network of composite-specialist partners, the company can analyze applications with sophisticated Finite Element Analysis, apply an extensive library of physical properties testing, and then optimize a structure based on strength, durability and longevity and cost.
The primary objective is to leverage Kenway’s history of fighting corrosion with composites solutions to provide customers with long-lasting, durable and cost-effective solutions for their operating needs.
