Scott & Fyfe, a manufacturer of technical textiles, has become a member of the Composites UK trade association.

Scott & Fyfe became a member during the run up to the recent Composites UK event, Supporting Composite Industry Growth in the UK – an event hosted by Scott & Fyfe within the company’s Innovation Space.

The event was a real success, providing a great opportunity to meet new contacts who are involved within the composite industry throughout Scotland, the company reports. 

Shaping the future

Paul McMullan, Composite Director explained that the decision to join was due to a desire to play a more active role in shaping the future of composite materials both within the UK and on a global platform.

“As a company committed to innovation and pushing the boundaries of composite technology, we felt it important to be connected to the UK trade association for composites so that we can positively influence the strategic direction of research and government support to UK SME’s within the Composite sector,” he said.

Encouraging growth

Composites UK acts to encourage continuous growth and development of the industry, promoting the best-practice use of composites materials. Its role is to bring companies throughout the supply chain together creating partnerships, as-well-as creating a unified voice to drive the industry forward, benefiting all of those involved.

The decision ties in with the ambitious plans of Scott & Fyfe to further grow its technical textile business within sectors including automotive, mass transit, construction, marine, oil and gas and renewable energy. Membership also provides an ideal opportunity to network and engage with like-minded and ambitious UK companies.
