Quatro Composites Opens Expansion

A northwest Iowa company that makes a high tech material used by the medical and airline industry is celebrating an expansion. Governor Terry Branstad was in Orange City this afternoon, attending the ribbon cutting at Quatro Composites' new 45-thousand square foot expansion. Quatro Composites produces light-weight, ultra-strong carbon fiber materials. Its product is even used in the construction of Boeing's 787 Dreamliner. The company's CEO Steve Roesner says this expansion won't be the last. "We're still a small company, that's growing, that's aspiring. We started in the alfalfa fields but today this company is supplying some of the world's finest and most advanced aircraft," said Roesner. The expansion at the Orange City facility brings the company's manufacturing space to more than 100-thousand square feet in two facilities.
