Textum announced Monday it will establish a new manufacturing facility in Miami Township to begin making carbon-carbon composites. The facility would create 22 new jobs, adding manufacturing capabilities to the company’s existing Lyons Road sales office. 

“There is a clear need for the nation to increase its production capacity for high temperature composite materials in support of hypersonic systems development and commercial space exploration efforts. Our headquarters are in Charlotte, North Carolina, but proximity to Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, access to a strong technical workforce, and existing relationships with a strong network of partners in the region, makes the Dayton Region an excellent choice to establish this brand new C/C manufacturing facility, and we’re excited to bring this very high value technology to the region,” said Mike Rauscher, Vice President of Textum.

The $4.7 million facility is complementary to the company’s core business in custom woven fabrics and preforms, which are mainly used in thermal protection systems for space vehicles, hypersonic aeroshell components, and other high-end aerospace markets that see extreme environments. The new operations will take the fabric and preform reinforcements and form them into composite articles, providing end-use customers with faster and lower cost options for these high-end materials.

“Textum is a welcome addition to the Dayton Region’s manufacturing community and the DDC and JobsOhio are excited to support their growth in the region.” said Julie Sullivan, Executive Vice President of Regional Development for the Dayton Development Coalition. “Their intricate custom work brings new capabilities to our region and will offer excellent jobs for our skilled engineering and manufacturing workforce.”

Textum specializes in developing and manufacturing unique products that have a high barrier to entry, are protected by patent or exclusive license, or have innovative or novel process requirements. The company often operates under exclusive relationships with suppliers and customers to protect the customer’s intellectual properties and proprietary programs. By combining unique aspects of Textum’s textile reinforcements with commercially proven composite manufacturing methods, the new expansion will offer several unique advantages to the Aerospace and Defense communities.

“We are excited to have the advanced manufacturing capability of Textum coming to Miami Township,” said Chris Snyder, Miami Township Assistant Township Administrator. “The capabilities they bring to support our national defense while providing skilled manufacturing jobs is a strategic investment in our region and we welcome them to our community.” 

“We’re thrilled by the energy Textum is bringing with them and are proud to have been able to support their growth through our ED/GE grant program,” said Montgomery County Commission President Carolyn Rice. “Thanks to the collaborative efforts of our many partners, Montgomery County continues to see growth in industries such as aerospace, composites, advanced materials and manufacturing.”
