Our story really began around 2015, when Steve had his lightbulb moment. Having gained 19 years of commercial experience at Rolls-Royce and a further 10+ years managing composite manufacturing businesses, Steve was a capable businessman with an eye for opportunities. He foresaw that as pressure to reduce carbon emissions in the automotive industry increased, so too would the demand for affordable lightweight components.
However, the composite manufacturing industry wasn’t set up for producing high volume, low cost parts because of the labour-intensive processes involved. But what if those processes could be automated, thought Steve? This is how the idea for Composite Braiding was born.
We are now a small but growing team who have won global awards for our work. We’ve combined proven, existing technologies in a new way to create a unique offer in the composite manufacturing market.
We employ and develop skilled people who deeply care about and understand what we do. This makes our jobs more interesting and improves our efficiency and productivity.
The next stage of our journey is quality accreditation. We are currently working towards ISO9001 and IATF 16949. To help us achieve these accreditations, it’s important that we have a clear Quality Policy Statement. Here it is:
“Our aim is that the name Composite Braiding Ltd is synonymous with ‘Quality’ in the minds of our customers. All team members, at all levels of the business are responsible for the quality of their work and the collective output of the whole team. We are all empowered to identify opportunities for improvement across the business and to collaborate in their implementation.”
Braided thermoplastic composites
Our highly-automated production facility combines materials such as carbon, glass, aramid, and basalt fibres with a thermoplastic, to produce an advanced composite which is stiffer and stronger than steel and up to 60% lighter.
Our composites are also significantly cheaper, mechanically superior and more sustainable than traditional composites. We can produce up to 100,000 parts each year at a cost similar to traditional manufacturing.
We work with a variety of companies, from small innovative manufacturers to major multinational OEMs, and offer a range of services that are tailored to your requirements.
