ABOUT US

OUR PROMISE

Delivering High Value Complex Composite Parts

Our History

Beginning as the sole manufacturer of Smart Tooling, we produced shape memory polymer composite tooling solutions for complex composite structures. Part of that process included producing pre-production parts.

Over time our defense & drone customers began asking us to produce low-volume composite runs, benefiting from our expertise with Smart Tooling. Eventually, with an increasing demand Spintech Holdings, Inc. established Hawthorn Composites.

Today Hawthorn Composites has produced wings for commercial drones, fuselages for ordinance, and inlet ducts for UAVs.
