Hexagon Lincoln LLC designs, tests and manufactures high-pressure fuel and storage tanks for compressed natural gas (CNG). The Lincoln, Neb.-based company (formerly known as Lincoln Composites) is part of Hexagon Composites Group, which started in the aerospace industry more than 50 years ago manufacturing filament-wound pressure vessels.
“It feels good to be a part of a company like Hexagon Lincoln,” Dave Myers, sales manager for North America, says proudly. “Certainly a company in today’s world that has been around for this long is a feat. But for many companies this longevity doesn’t happen, and for those that were started 40 or 50 years ago they have now gone away. So it’s nice to be involved with a company that has been around, is well managed and financially stable.”
Hexagon, Lincoln has had many names over the years, including Brunswick, Lincoln Composites and General Dynamics Myers says. “About 25 years ago, the company developed the first all-composite pressure vessels primarily used in natural gas vehicles. Lincoln Composites left the aerospace industry nearly 15 years ago and has since become the largest global manufacturer of what is called a type-4 pressure vessel.”
