About Axion

About Axion,
the company.

Axion is a world leader in structural polymer composite solutions for industry

One of Axion’s biggest goals is to facilitate the transition from hardwoods to higher-performing, environmentally responsible and lower lifespan-cost structural polymer composites. Our other goal is to create as many smart, sustainable structural solutions as we can.

Our proprietary material science and manufacturing technology has been carefully developed over the last two decades and field tested on very tough jobs. And since we’ve been working on structural composites longer than anyone else, we’re proud to have become the industry benchmark.
