In the last four years we have also launched a series of filament winding technologies, including high-speed, multi-axis and 3D winding machines. Our commitment to continual improvement has earned us a reputation as one of our industry’s true innovators.
We operate a busy programme of R&D at our innovation centre in Cheshire in the North West of England where we are working in partnership with world-leading scientists and academics to develop next-generation materials including strong, lightweight composite parts for automotive and aerospace.
