“There is a clear need for the nation to increase its production capacity for high-temperature composite materials in support of hypersonic systems development and commercial space exploration efforts. Our headquarters are in Charlotte, North Carolina, but proximity to Wright Patterson Air Force Base, access to a strong technical workforce, and existing relationships with a strong network of partners in the region, makes Dayton an excellent choice to establish this brand new carbon-carbon manufacturing facility, and we’re excited to bring this very high-value technology to the region.”

Why Ohio?

Textum chose the Dayton Region because it is home to Wright Patterson Air Force Base, a highly-capable workforce, and strong existing strategic partnerships.
