Connecting The Global Ceramic & Glass Industry

Since the earliest times, ceramics have brought people together. But rather than for dining, engineered ceramics and glass bring people together through the components, devices and systems that contain this unique family of materials. Ceramic and glass materials are used in many building products, including bricks, cement, and windows, and in many common and uncommon engineered products and systems, including mobile phones, sensors, cars, airplanes, and more.

Creating Networking Opportunities for Women in South Carolina

Achieving success as a woman in business doesn’t happen “in spite of being a woman” or by overcoming perceived obstacles. Women who achieve success in business will tell you it is about lifting each other up, motivating each other, sharing successes and failures, and finding a common voice.

Supporting, Promoting and Inspiring Women in Industry

Out of a need came an idea, and out of an idea came a movement. Women in Manufacturing (WiM) is a national trade association that offers a host of professional development, education, and networking opportunities that previously did not exist for women in industry.

Strength through Innovation

From the automotive industry to aerospace, composites are everywhere. These combinations of components – sometimes referred to as FRP or fiber-reinforced polymers – boast countless advantages over materials such as steel since they do not rust and are extremely durable yet lightweight, making them ideal for airplanes, storage tanks, windmill blades and much more.

The Plastic Problem

Millions of tons of plastic are carelessly discarded annually, destined for landfills or leaked into the environment. Eight million tons of this plastic finds its way into the oceans each year. At this rate there will be more plastic in the ocean (by weight) than fish by 2050, the Ellen MacArthur Foundation reports.
