The Composite Industry Directory – Created Specifically for the Composites World!


Composite business or organization

Find a composite organization based on market, process, country, and much more.  Most noteworthy, we look at several composite industry criteria based on the information the organization provides.   This site services all markets from marine to industrial and beyond.  Composite Design World lists all composite shops whether a large ISO9001 plant or a small family owned fiberglass repair business.

Locate a Composite Manufacturer

Find a composite manufacturer near you or by country.  But you can also look at relevant manufacturing processes used and what they offer for composite products such as FRP, carbon fiber, aramids, etc.

Certificate Program Coming Soon!

CDW will be introducing a Composite Manufacturer Certificate Program.  This will go much deeper than simply manufacturing standards (like ISO or ABYC).  CDW will rate manufacturers for you based on quality of people, training and up-to-date processes.  Stay tuned for details.  We encourage schools and composite organizations to join us so we can all make the industry better.   Wish to be involved?  Send a note to

The initial role-out will be for the USA and Canada.  We then will take on other continents.  Stay tuned.  Want to get something going for your country?  Drop CDW a note.

Looking for a composite organization for a project, design or product?

You may search globally or just within a region for manufacturers, design firms, boat repair shops, etc.  Our upcoming Certification Program will help define the manufacturers and glass shops.
