Posted 4 February 2013

Composites UK has released details of its development plans for 2013 including enhanced support for its membership. The announcement follows the organisation’s move to new offices in Hemel Hempstead.

Dr Sue Halliwell, Composites UK’s operations manager, said: “Key priorities for our members [include] representation of our industry at various forums, improving industry-to-industry and industry-to-academia collaborations and supporting [the sector’s] training and education needs.

“Key partnerships include those with the National Composites Centre, Composites Skills Alliance, British Plastics Federation and of course the Composites Engineering Show where we will have an even greater presence in 2013.”

In addition to a revised programme of events the association is heavily involved with the Simplc initiative, which aims at improving health and safety awareness within the industry. Dr Paul Darby, health and safety director for Composites UK, said: “The industry needs to wake up to its health and safety requirements and as a trade body we are there to help.”

The organisation will also be working with Wrap to develop a resource efficiency action plan, which will help composites companies formulate suitable recycling and end-of-life initiatives for their products.
