Established in the United States in 1988 as a trading company, Argosy began to focus on the commercial aerospace market in Asia when the Company became the material solutions provider for composite materials and specialty chemicals to a major aerospace manufacturer. To support this business, Argosy opened its first overseas office in Taiwan. Over the next five years, Argosy became a key supplier to China and was well positioned in this market when outsourcing to Asia by aircraft manufacturers such as Boeing, Sikorsky, Honeywell and Eurocopter took off in 2000. To serve the needs of the market, Argosy opened offices in Beijing, Xian, and Shanghai, China as well as in Korea, Malaysia, Singapore, India and Australia. Currently, Argosy is an approved supplier to every major aerospace contractor in Asia, excluding Japan.
