Composite Integration Ltd entered its 20th year in 2022. Founded in 2002 by Stephen Leonard-Williams and Richard Bland, both having significant experience in RTM, liquid moulding methods and equipment development, it has grown continuously year on year.
To provide a comprehensive range of equipment and services to multiple sectors worldwide, Composite Integration assembled a talented technical team covering a variety of engineering subjects including composites, mechanical engineering, electrical engineering, and software development.
The long-term company vision included building a team to ensure it continued to thrive and grow well beyond the tenure of the founding members and to ensure successful collaborations with clients and partners continued far into the future. To achieve this, a management team has been carefully assembled in recent years with a wide variety of skills and experience and, in December 2021, the company restructured enabling the team to own the equity in the business.
A major contribution to the company’s long-term success has been its commitment to a core Composites capability and a deep understanding of the process requirements for manufacture of a wide range of composite components. The company is currently engaged in collaborative research programmes with a total value in excess of £10M, developing tooling techniques, process control & automation and state of the art composite parts. Recent recognition of this work includes selection as one of two finalists in the JEC Composites Innovation Awards – Aerospace Application category.
The new team is actively developing and updating the strategic plan to maintain controlled growth of Composite Integration, deliver a growing range of market leading products across multiple sectors and enable us to continue to provide a world class service to our expanding client base.
