Rockwood Composites has increased its workforce by 50% in the past six months. The company is also building two new 100 tonne presses, which will be on stream in October.
Presses are used by the firm to apply the heat and pressure needed to cure raw composites materials into components and structures for sectors such as aerospace, defence, nuclear and medical. In addition, the company has invested in a Hurco CNC machining centre, which is aimed at complementing the increase in capacity for pressing, moulding and laminating.
