Cygnet Texkimp has become an SME Affiliate Scheme member of the National Composites Centre (NCC), based in Bristol, UK.

The SME Affiliate Scheme, which was launched in October 2020, gives small and medium-sized enterprises affordable access to the NCC’s capabilities, expertise, technology, training and networking opportunities.

Cygnet Texkimp is a leading provider of fibre handling and converting technology, manufacturing advanced machinery for the composites and high-performance fibre markets. It designs and builds technologies to process technical fibres for worldwide markets in aerospace, automotive, wind energy, sporting goods and industrial.

“We have been working together with the NCC for some time and so joining as an SME affiliate member is a natural progression,” said the company’s CEO Luke Vardy. “We look forward to developing our relationship and collaborating on many projects going forward.”

“We’re really pleased to welcome Cygnet Texkimp and looking forward to continuing to build on the work we’ve already completed with the company to date,” added Ed Goodman, business unit director for emerging markets at the NCC. “Together we’ll be exploring the next generation of process equipment for future fibre technology, as well as application-specific products.”
