Company Summary

TNT began in 1995 within the composite industry. “CAFÉ” regulations and consumers demand less fuel consumption, which requires lower vehicle weight. 10% reduction in vehicle mass = 7% increase in gas mileage. Chrysler, GM, Tesla, Harley Davidson, Remington, Gulfstream, etc. (our customers) look to fiber-reinforced materials that are more durable than traditional materials, corrosion resistant and can withstand higher loads with less weight.
