Strong partnerships provide
opportunities for business growth and strengthen the technology and
manufacturing portfolios of the involved parties.  The Globe composites team has been quoting
work with other machine builders who are leaders in their respective fields and
we look forward to announcing first projects with these partners.  One of the challenges of the custom equipment
supplier is physically demonstrating new technology.  Most new projects are based on past proven
machines and systems, but there is nearly always an element of development and
invention required (the custom part). 
Having equipment available to demonstrate specific manufacturing
processes to a broad clientele represents a capital commitment that is often unrealistic.  Globe expects to announce a partnership
opportunity in the near future in which Globe process equipment is located in a
well-supported environment with the goal of soliciting funded development work
from a variety of industry customers and partners.  Stay tuned for this exciting announcement.
