US-based Teijin Group subsidiary expands capacity in Sarepta, Louisiana

Continental Structural Plastics (CSP), one of the world’s largest manufacturers of composite components, is expanding its facility in Sarepta, Louisiana in the US, with the purchase of an LFT-D line that includes a DIEFFENBACHER press with a pressing force of 2,500 tonnes (25,000 kN). CSP will use its new LFT-D line, scheduled to begin operating in the first quarter of 2022, to produce tailgate covers for pickup trucks.

CSP has operated three DIEFFENBACHER LFT-D lines with identically constructed presses in Sarepta for 20 years. “Our DIEFFENBACHER lines from 2001 have done an excellent job for two decades. That's why we've decided to order another LFT-D line with a 2,500-tonne hydraulic press from DIEFFENBACHER,” said Dale Armstrong, Advanced Process Engineer at CSP. “In addition, we always feel very well supported by the local DIEFFENBACHER staff here in North America,” he added.

A Teijin Group Company, CSP manufactures composite components for a variety of industries, including automotive, trucking, leisure and construction. CSP is headquartered in Auburn Hills, Michigan, and operates facilities in the United States, Mexico, France, Portugal, Czech Republic and China.
