Our vision

“Composite construction refers to any structure with two or more distinct materials that are combined to create an engineered product with properties “greater that the sum of its parts.”

Driven by our passion for composites and today’s increasing demand for sustainable
solutions, Pontis aims to be at the forefront of acquainting the world with the power and endless possibilities of composite structures.

Coming from different industries and cultures, having seen numerous applications of composites and keeping an open mind for inspiring and fresh ideas from others, we are dedicated to invent new and useful ways to apply composites and form the bridge between old en new technology.

With our ability to think outside and beyond the box and create non-planar forms with a fewer number of assembled parts, we aim to contribute to the advancement of the composites industry as a whole and to a more sustainable future.
