About 3A Composites Europe

Welcome to 3A Composites Europe! PANELS AND SHEETS are at the very heart of our business, and we really have something for everyone: ranging from aluminium or plastic to paper.

Our customers include architects, interior designers, shop fitters, exhibition stand builders, product designers and sign makers, and many of our products are also used in industrial and transport sectors. We have split our different target groups into three market segments: Architecture, Display and Industry.

We have set ourselves the goal of manufacturing all our products using carbon neutral production by 2035, providing products which are 100% recyclable and offering solutions which leave a minimal environmental footprint. Our vision is to work as a team to design products and functional solutions which make the world safer, more beautiful and more sustainable.

We would like customers to be inspired by our innovative products and applications, convinced by our quality and, at the same time, be a leading company within our industry in terms of sustainability.

Our fourteen European sites are part of the international 3A Composites Group which employs a workforce of approximately 4,300. This group is an independent division of Schweiter Technologies AG.
