VISTAGY President and CEO Steve Luby to Speak at CompositesWorld’s Investment Forum
Presentation will cover ways to fully leverage the value of composites and speed their effective use in a variety of applications
WALTHAM, MA, (USA), February 19, 2009 — VISTAGY, Inc., a leading provider of industry-specific engineering software and services, today announced that President and CEO Steve Luby will speak at CompositesWorld’s Investment Forum on Thursday, February 26 at 2 PM at the Roosevelt Hotel in New York City. Mr. Luby’s speech is entitled, “Enabling the Potential of Composites — Trends and Keys to Speeding Effective Use of Composites in Different Applications.”
Mr. Luby founded VISTAGY in 1991 and has helped pioneer the efficient use of composites in a variety of industries, including aerospace, high performance automotive, marine and wind energy. VISTAGY’s revenues grew 30 percent and its product revenues climbed 52 percent in 2008. Mr. Luby is extremely bullish on the outlook for the composites industry.
“Composite materials provide all kinds of potential benefits,” said Mr. Luby. “But there’s a higher degree of complexity in working with composites than with more traditional materials, such as metal. So it is critical to have the right tools and methodologies if you expect to maximize the value of composites.”
Composites can provide significant benefits across a variety of industries, including aerospace, automotive and wind energy. For instance, they can be used to enhance performance; reduce weight, part counts and assembly costs, and improve durability by virtue of being fatigue and corrosion-resistant
“The irony is that when manufacturers achieve great efficiency with composites, they actually end up using less of them,” said Mr. Luby.
