New joint venture to help meet China's increasing electricity needs with state-of-the-art ACCC conductor

Today, CTC Global announced that it entered into a joint venture with the NARI Group, a wholly-owned subsidiary of the State Grid Corporation of China, the world's largest electric utility company. The new company, Jiangsu NARI CTC Composite Material Co, Ltd, will begin commercial operations in early 2014 and produce high-capacity, energy-efficient, and highly-proven ACCC® conductor core in China, exclusively for the Chinese market.

"China is the world's most populous country and largest energy consumer. China's annual economic growth rate has averaged 10 percent every year since 2000, which has spurred increased demand for electricity. ACCC conductor, which was invented, developed and internationally patented by CTC Global, offers us the most advanced and well-proven conductor technology that will help us reach our transmission and growth objectives," said Mr. Yang Yingjian, Chief Technology Officer with NARI of State Grid Corporation of China.

Jiangsu NARI CTC Composite Material Co, Ltd will produce ACCC core using CTC's internally built pultrusion machines and specialized tooling. CTC will manage the new venture to ensure the highest quality, while supplying all of its proprietary raw materials and expertise. The new company will produce core exclusively for the Chinese market, though core could be shipped globally should CTC's core production facility in Irvine, California be overbooked.

"We are pleased that State Grid Corporation of China recognizes the substantial value of the ACCC conductor, and together we look forward to producing the reliable and efficient conductor core in China," stated Dr. Jason Huang, CEO of CTC Global and General Manager of the new joint company.
