GinerELX Streamlines Spectracarb Product Portfolio

GinerELX takes a bold step to update and rein­vig­o­rate its Spec­tracarb prod­uct port­fo­lio. These changes will ensure a long-term and sus­tain­able sup­ply of their pre­miere graphi­tized car­bon pan­el products.

In Decem­ber 2018 GinerELX acquired the entire­ty of the Engi­neered Fibers Tech­nol­o­gy (EFT) com­pa­ny includ­ing brand­ing, man­u­fac­tur­ing, stock and all of the company’s assets while nat­u­ral­ly inher­it­ing their entire cus­tomer base. Caplinq Europe BV remains the Euro­pean rep­re­sen­ta­tive of Spec­tracarb products.

As part of their acqui­si­tion, GinerELX ana­lyzed the exist­ing busi­ness mod­el and real­ized that, if they want­ed their busi­ness to be sol­vent and prof­itable, they had to com­plete­ly trans­form and reor­ga­nize the costs and pro­duc­tion lines. EFT was liq­ui­dat­ing the exist­ing inven­to­ry in prices way under the man­u­fac­tur­ing cost, forc­ing GinerELX to reeval­u­ate the prod­uct port­fo­lio and man­u­fac­tur­ing process to ensure that they can con­tin­ue pro­vid­ing excep­tion­al qual­i­ty and service.

As a result, effec­tive August the 1st, GinerELX has increased the Spec­tracarb prices for all of their prod­uct lines while adapt­ing or com­plete­ly remov­ing some of the prod­uct lines to reflect the ser­vices GinerELX’s clients most­ly need.

This result­ed in the fol­low­ing changes:

  • Spec­tracarb 2050A Graphi­tized Car­bon Fiber will remain as a sup­port­ed prod­uct line with only part codes 6060 and 7090 avail­able in a 55 x 55cm stan­dard size.
  • Spec­tracarb 2225 Acti­vat­ed Car­bon Fab­ric is discontinued. 
  • Oth­er sizes and den­si­ties that were pre­vi­ous­ly avail­able as stan­dard prod­ucts are only avail­able as cus­tom prod­ucts. Cus­tom orders will still be accept­ed but they will be quot­ed on a case by case basis with high­er lead time and MOQ.

You can see the new pack­age types, pric­ing and tech­ni­cal spec­i­fi­ca­tions on our prod­uct page.

There is still some stock avail­able from cer­tain dis­con­tin­ued prod­uct codes so if you are inter­est­ed in receiv­ing new stock of dis­con­tin­ued prod­ucts we will be able to uti­lize the exist­ing inven­to­ry until stock is depleted.

CAPLINQ wants to reas­sure you that despite these changes, the remain­ing prod­uct lines will still have our full sup­port and we will con­tin­ue to invest in R&D to improve the Gas Dif­fu­sion Lay­er technology.
