-MFG has steadily expanded from a premium fabricator of blades, nacelles and other composite turbine components into a complete lifecycle partner for the industry-
Atlanta, GA – At the American Wind Energy Association’s Conference & Exhibition in Atlanta, the Molded Fiber Glass Companies (MFG) is introducing MFG Wind, a new brand that represents the comprehensive wind-focused set of capabilities that the company brings to the market.
Since its earliest days, MFG has been a pioneer of composite product advances and a top wind energy supplier of blades, nacelles and spinners. As the wind industry has matured and the fleet of installed turbines is aging, operators are demanding new, sophisticated aftermarket services. According to industry reports, aftermarket services are now the fastest growing segment and should remain strong in the foreseeable future.
In response to these needs, MFG has leveraged the company’s network of factories and engineering resources to steadily expand its menu of offerings. In 2008, the company founded Wind Energy Services Company to provide field repair and maintenance services. Then, in 2011 it added newly fabricated spare replacement parts, blade reconditioning services, and factory repairs – including enhancements that can improve the efficiency of older, smaller turbines.
Today the company provides a one-stop, premium resource for ‘all things composite’ – across the entire lifespan of a wind turbine. This includes support to traditional OEM manufacturers and wind farm operators, as well as emerging O&M companies and equipment resellers. With six factories actively producing composites for wind, two WES service centers providing field and factory services, and a dedicated test and research laboratory – MFG has created the industry’s first wind turbine composites company to provide comprehensive lifetime support for both OEM manufacturers and operators.
“The mission at MFG Wind is to be a fully resourced composites partner to the wind industry, and the recognized standard for quality workmanship – at every stage of the lifecycle,” according to Gary Kanaby, director of sales and marketing for MFG Wind. “MFG has been visionary about wind energy since the beginning, and we believe MFG Wind is configured to provide customers with the quality of support they need to maintain healthy operations.”
