Headquartered in New Zealand, High Modulus has subsidiaries and offices in Australia, the United Kingdom, the United States and Singapore.

Paul Goddard, CEO of High Modulus, will oversee Gurit's Asia/Pacific market, while Richard Downs-Honey, co-owner of High Modulus, will be instrumental in developing the B3 SmartPac business.
