Quatro Composites Expands QFORGE Building

Orange City, IA – Quatro Composites has begun expansion on a 3,000 square foot addition to the QFORGE division of their Orange City manufacturing facility. The expansion will add additional offices for QFORGE support, conference rooms, expanded raw material storage, a larger shipping/receiving area, and team member commons and locker rooms as well as additional parking.

The expansion is a result of a ramp in production to meet Boeing’s 787 Dreamliner rate on the stowage bin fittings on contract with Quatro Composites. QFORGE is Quatro’s proprietary manufacturing process for composite thermoplastic parts.

“Quatro has been blessed throughout the last 10 years with rapid growth,” says company President and CEO Steve Roesner. “With every expansion we are reminded how far we’ve come. Our success has been a direct result of the innovation and dedication of our many team members.”
