Web Industries, Inc., a custom manufacturing and development services provider for flexible materials, has acquired CAD Cut, Inc., a provider of fabric cutting and kitting services for the aerospace, medical and industrial fabrics markets. Under the terms of this transaction, Web has purchased essentially all of the assets of CAD Cut, including the company name, and will continue to operate CAD Cut's facilities in Middlesex, VT, and Denton, TX.

Based in Vermont, CAD Cut uses the latest in computer controlled laser and knife cutting systems, supply chain management services and quality systems. The company specializes in providing composite ply kits to the aerospace, aviation, defense and industrial markets and also manufactures multilayer insulation blankets for cryogenic applications in medical devices as well as process aides for wind tunnel testing devices.

Web Industries, a privately held 100% ESOP company, provides commercial-scale, outsource converting, manufacturing and development services to a wide array of customers in the aerospace composites, consumer products, medical, and wire and cable markets.

The synergy between the two companies is especially strong in the aerospace sector, where Web provids precision composite slit tape for automated manufacturing, and CAD Cut has a strong background in providing precut and kitted material for hand layup of advanced composite parts. The addition of CAD Cut's ply cutting and kitting capabilities to Web Industries' existing array of proprietary composite slitting, spooling, chopping, and winding technologies and services will allow the company to offer a full range of advanced composite formatting solutions to the aerospace, automotive, and industrial markets.
