A special announcement…
A special announcement was made by MOCS. This YES!Delft company secured an investment from InnovationQuarter to further expand its business. No one less than alderman Ferrie Förster of Delft announced this great news on Tuesday.
“This is a solid and profitable sector and a company led by entrepreneurs with a great track record in product development”, Francis Quint of InnovationQuarter said about the investment.
MOCS is specialized in modernising the production process of composite structures. To do so, several innovative methods are developed – resulting in spin-outs such as software company Viktor and hardware solution CODURE. Both of these got an investment from IQ to make sure these innovations reach the market.
By making composite structures affordable, MOCS helps other companies to take advantage of the great characteristics of this material: it’s light, strong, sustainable and has total freedom of shape.
