Our People Make Our Company

Immeasurable success comes from an invaluable workforce.

We Are Our People

Many modern manufacturers promise a cut-and-paste product, and that is okay. It’s easy to promise results when people and parts are interchangeable.

At CPS, our success stems from the immeasurable impact of our workforce. We are able to create custom, enterprise-level products, and components thanks to the exceptional people behind the process.

CPS is a world leader in metal matrix and ceramic composites. We continue to innovate and accelerate market megatrends to drive industry customization.

Teams, Not Individuals

We work together to create customized modern material solutions. No one person can deliver world-leading metal matrix and ceramic products and components. It takes teamwork to develop solutions our clients trust.

Room for Growth

Our markets are large and growing — and our competition is limited. Only a few companies in the world can make high quality metal matrix composites.

CPS’ technology is a strong, proprietary process for combining metals and ceramics. This is supported by an experienced and capable management team who ensures we’re always moving forward.

Looking to the Future

No industry stays the same forever. With economic and climate uncertainty comes a need to focus on the future. CPS experts and composite engineers work to bring innovative new materials and material solutions to clients who need them.
