In November 2009 the Government launched the UK Composites Strategy.This strategy highlighted the importance of composites to the future of UK manufacturing and the Government's plans for ensuring that the UK has the means to succeed in intensely competitive global markets.
A key part of this strategy was the establishment of the National Composites Centre (NCC), which has brought together dynamic companies and enterprising academics to develop new technologies for the design and rapid manufacture of high-quality composite products. The combination of academic and business strengths is speeding progress from laboratory to design to factory and into products
