Our story

Composite Essential Materials came to fruition when Nick and Maritsa Dan refused to let a legacy die. 

30 years ago, Nida-Core dared to introduce rigid elastic technology to the US using Nidaplast SAS structural honeycombs as it's marquis product. As a leader in the industry, the name Nida-Core became synonymous with lightweight, strong, rot-proof and composite solution. In 2011, 3M, the world’s leader in innovation acquired Nida-Core. After two short years, 3M decided to discontinue their composites division.  With such an overwhelmingly awesome product portfolio, the Dan's could not pass up the opportunity to take over the business they had been a part of for the past 15 years.

"We gained our years of knowledge like most, working hard to develop business for large companies. We pride ourselves on providing stellar customer service and guarantee the products we offer are the Genuine “Nida-Core” and “3M Composites” products."

The knowledge we have gained from our customers has encouraged us to offer additional products to meet 100% of your needs. Give us a call and see how we can help your business grow."
