The Everspeed group has announced the establishment of an office for HP Composites in Denver, North Carolina. The Everspeed group is comprised of 12 companies that provide a range of products and services in the automotive and motorsports sectors, including HP Composites and Onroak Automotive. The announcement comes following a banner first year for HP Composites in North America, doing well over US$1m in business working with multiple OEMs and racecar manufacturers.
HP Composites is a producer of carbon fiber and composite components for motorsport, series production and the industrial and aerospace sectors. Employing over 250 people, HP Composites is headquartered in Ascoli Piceno on the east coast of Italy. The new HP Composites office in Denver, NC will maintain a dedicated design department for North American products and services and will continue to expand its capabilities in the future.
Onroak Automotive designs and produces championship winning sports prototype racecars under the Ligier and Morgan brands, and formula cars under the Crawford brand. Onroak Automotive recently acquired Crawford Motorsport and moved to its new 25,000 square-foot facility in Denver, NC. This shop serves as the base of operations to support customers across multiple racings series, including IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar, IMSA Prototype Challenge presented by Mazda, and F4 United States competition.
“We have already established relationships with OEM customers here in North America, so creating this office and investing in our future capabilities here will give us the structure to provide the best service and solution for our customers,” said Abramo Levato, general manager, HP Composites. “We have been growing rapidly, and are very pleased to be making this move and be able to continue to expand our efforts.”
“We are thrilled to be establishing this HP Composites office in North America—they do some spectacular work,” added Max Crawford, general manager, Onroak Automotive North America. “This will be another important part of what we are able to provide customers, whether that is helping OEM manufacturers quickly design, prototype, and bring content to market or supporting what we are doing in motorsport. Everspeed has really committed to North America, and HP Composites will no doubt be a very important part of our future growth.”
