Structural materials - What we do

Structured to deliver

From our major manufacturing sites in North America and Europe, we supply a global customer base through a network of local, highly skilled sales and technical support engineers. No matter where in the world we are, each site shares the same commitment to providing customers with the most responsive and reliable service, including:


We manufacture an unparalleled range of advanced composite carbon, glass and specialist fibre reinforced prepreg materials, all custom formulated for structural applications.

Prototyping and high volume technology development

Unlike other advanced composite materials suppliers, we maintain a highly skilled workforce of engineers and laminators – all engaged in the design and manufacture of prototype and production components, with a strong focus on emerging high volume manufacturing technologies.

Our Derby facility specialises in the engineering of advanced composites solutions, and is the practical test-bed for many of our new products and technologies. We work closely with our customers, offering support with design for manufacture and technology transfer packages.

Collaboration and Research & Development

Our UK Technology Centre serves as our R&D facility. Staffed by highly trained project engineers, technicians and chemists, the centre provides design, process development, formulation, testing and evaluation services. The facility also acts as a vital hub for numerous multi-organisation, international collaborative research programmes.
