Leading supplier of high-quality carbon fibre products and specialist manufacturing services divides as hydrogen economy takes off.
EMS, a leading supplier of high-quality carbon fibre products and specialist manufacturing services evolves into two new companies: NPROXX and Pronexos.

Carbon fibre pressure vessels for the hydrogen economy
"The reason for the split is the formation of the new hydrogen economy", explains Reinhard Hinterreither, who will lead NPROXX as Managing Director together with Olivier Marques-Borras.
"We believe that hydrogen will be a key energy source in the future. And it is our strong ambition to make our solutions play a key role in this new exciting economy. For this reason we are from now on marketing our pressure vessels internationally under the fresh brand NPROXX."
As a first step of growth a new NPROXX head office will be opened at Heerlen, The Netherlands, 1 October while NPROXX's manufacturing capacities will be extended at the site in Jülich, Germany. Pronexos' activities, which include carbon fibre rollers for the paper, film/foil and converting industries as well as engineering, design and specialist manufacturing for the aerospace and semiconductor industries will be continued at both sites: Almelo (The Netherlands) and Jülich (Germany). The name EMS will no longer be used.
