Nanotures, an innovative Spanish technology company specialising in producing, processing and applying nanostructure materials and advanced composite applications, has received an investment from Axon Partners Group.
Nanotures is an R&D company based in Cadiz and founded at the University of Cordoba. The company develops complete solutions for nanomaterials, nanocomposites and composites, including design, prototyping and industrialisation.
Among the company’s outstanding projects are five developments of new automated and semi-automated processes for composites that they have made exclusively for Spanish and international clients, to whom they then transfer the intellectual property, as well as large-scale projects such as the exterior façade elements of the Atlético de Madrid stadium (Cívitas Metropolitano) and the beams of the retractable roof system of the Santiago Bernabéu stadium.
Composites have become one of the major revolutions in sectors such as civil engineering, construction and automotive in recent years, thanks to their qualities as materials that offer high mechanical resistance due to their density and lack of corrosion. The size of the global market for composite materials was estimated at $86.4 billion in 2020 and is expected to expand at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 6.6% from 2021 to 2028, positioning Spain with more than 8% of European production (source Market & Market).
After its first foray into Asian countries, Nanotures will continue with its growth plan by focusing abroad, expanding the team and tackling international projects to position itself as a world leader.
Axon is a global investment and consulting firm focusing on technology and innovation. The firm has 90 professionals covering Europe, the Americas and MENA. Axon was listed on the Madrid Stock Exchange (BME Growth).
