What Our Customers Are Saying...

“The benefits are substantial; on the OEM side, a 30% reduction in floor weight (fuel cost saving), unmatched durability (no rot eliminates warranty-financed refits), simplification of the chassis, component consolidation, a reduction in installation labour (fewer production stations), and improvement in production throughput.”

Since 2009, RhinoKore Composite Solutions Inc. has partnered with René Matériaux Composites ltée (RMC) a Quebec-based manufacturer. Utilizing RhinoKore’s honeycomb core, RMC has successfully commercialized its patented 3-D structural shear plate technology for the manufacture of composite flooring for transit bus, shuttles, RVs, and commercial truck cabs. This revolutionary flooring is an innovative alternative to traditional plywood and other composite panels for both OEMs and aftermarket re-fitters.

RhinoKore Honeycomb Core

Lighter, Stronger, Smarter - Building Materials Have Evolved

Construction, Marine, Transportation, Sports Equipment – manufacturing companies in many industries have discovered honeycomb core gives them a great competitive advantage when building their products.
