Argosy International Inc., a global supplier of specialty materials and services that solve challenging technical and business problems, has been appointed by Aerovac Composites One, a leading supplier of Vacuum Bagging and Process Materials, to exclusively distribute Aerovac’s line of vacuum bagging process materials in Japan.

Argosy Japan’s General Manager, Akihiro “Hiro” Oda will lead the efforts for the Aerovac’s Process Materials partnership in Japan.
