Like most businesses, V2 Composites, Inc. began with a dream. A dream to build a company to manufacture unique, high-quality composite reinforcement solutions for niche-market customers while also creating a culture around employees singularly focused on working for the customer. Kevin Horne, the company's current president, and his employees, have never lost sight of that original vision.

V2's world-class, 50,000-square-foot manufacturing facility sits on 22 acres of land outside the Auburn, Alabama city limits and was once used as an indoor rodeo arena. The parking lot is gravel and Kevin intends for it to stay that way.

"To us, it's more important to have quality employees providing outstanding products and services to our network of customers than to have a fancy building. We prefer to invest in our people and product."
