Why Kenway Composites

When hiring Kenway Composites for your engineering and manufacturing projects, you’re adding a trustworthy partner to your team. At Kenway, we are as invested in your project’s success as you are because we know our reputation depends on your satisfaction. We have developed some best practices that ensure your projects are streamlined and efficient.

Solutions, Not Problems

We love a challenge, and we don’t like complications. When you come to us with a project, we will find the most efficient means of executing accomplishing it. We are a resourceful team who want to construct the most straightforward solution that works for you.

One Point of Contact

You will have the benefit of working with Kenway’s entire crew of experienced engineers, managers, and composite fabricators, without the headache of trying to manage them all. You will be assigned one project manager who will be your exclusive contact throughout the lifetime of the project. Whenever you have a question, concern, or change to your project, you will have one phone number to call for an immediate response.

Certified Quality

We know we manufacture the highest possible quality products, but we don’t expect you to take our word for it. Kenway Composites earned their certification from the Fiberglass Reinforced Plastics Institute (FRPI), which requires a four-step equipment certification process that ensures customers receive the project they sign for and for which they have paid. Our experienced laminators have completed the Certified Composites Technician (CCT) program as per the American Composites Manufacturers Association., the industry’s gold standard for composites training.

Founded in 1947 Kenway Composites is built on a foundation of innovation.  The company was an early convert to fiberglass materials and started applying its composites expertise to more demanding corrosion applications for Heavy Industrial customers.  Over the last 50-years, Kenway has remained at the forefront of composites manufacturing, specializing in the design, engineering, manufacturing, and installation of open-molded, filament wound and vacuum infused composites structures.

Kenway’s industrial manufacturing expertise focuses on five primary markets: Heavy Industry; Highway Infrastructure; Waterfront Infrastructure; Government & Military; and Specialty Products applications.  What links the company’s various business lines is technologically advanced manufacturing techniques, products manufactured for exacting service applications, and the highest quality assurance procedures and processes.

In March 2017 Kenway Composites was acquired by Creative Pultrusions, Inc., who itself is a subsidiary of Hill & Smith Holdings PLC.  This international PLC Group maintains leading positions in the design, manufacturing, and supply of infrastructure and utility products as well as galvanizing services. The group’s success is driven by a strategy of innovation, product development, and international expansion, alongside a highly entrepreneurial management culture.  The Creative Pultrusions Group of companies are world leaders in the composites industry.

Who We Are

Custom work and customer service are what distinguish Kenway. The company is strategically positioned to serve its customers by offering complete engineering and design capabilities so that it may bring both standard items as well as “one-off” unique molded fabrications from the design phase, through the manufacturing phase, and to final on-site installation. With our in-house design and testing capabilities and a network of composite-specialist partners, the company can analyze applications with sophisticated Finite Element Analysis, apply an extensive library of physical properties testing, and then optimize a structure based on strength, durability and longevity and cost.

Our primary objective is to leverage our history of fighting corrosion with composites solutions to provide our customers with long-lasting, durable and cost-effective solutions for their operating needs.
