Composites UK, the UK composites industry Trade Association, has completed 2014 with the launch of its new website.

The new website marks the end of a successful year for the Association, which has seen an unprecedented 51 new member companies since the start of the year. The site implements responsive technology, meaning it is now mobile friendly, encompassed in a fresh design which compliments the new Association branding unveiled at the Composites Engineering Show in November.

Claire Whysall, Communications Manager, said; “The website was the final piece of the rebranding exercise, which began in July this year. It was important that we updated the image of the Association as being the representative voice of the industry we needed to have a clear, concise brand that members are proud to be affiliated with.”

2014 also saw the Association gain three new members of staff – Claire Whysall as Communications Manager, Stella Job as Supply Chain Officer and Mark Humphrey as Industry Data Officer. Andrew Dugmore of TRB Lightweight Structures was appointed as Chairman in May and will serve a two year term in the role.

Dr. Sue Halliwell, Composite UK’s Operations Manager commented; “The key priority for Composites UK remains our members, representation of our industry at various forums, improving industry-industry and industry-academic collaborations, and supporting training and education needs to enable the industry to grow and remain competitive. In doing this we are actively involved with the Composites Leadership Forum, co-lead in the Composites Innovation Cluster programme of projects, and work with many other Trade Associations and National Bodies.”

The Association also continued as the Headline Industry Partner for the Composites Engineering Show, alongside which, the largest Composites UK Industry Awards Dinner was held at the National Motorcycle Museum.

Dr. Halliwell continued; “2015 will see us push our Composites Assured Practitioner (CAP) scheme, Health and Safety initiative and The Hub database which will encompass the UK’s capabilities throughout the whole composites supply chain, not to mention a full calendar of events.”
