We caught up with Tufcot's Managing Director, Greg Majchrzak, to discuss how the company makes the most of its Composites UK membership.
Please give a brief overview of Tufcot and the products and services you offer?
Tufcot is a composite engineering material manufactured from synthetic fibres and thermosetting resins. Tufcot offers the design engineer an attractive alternative to traditional materials used throughout industry for bushes, bearings, wear pads and many more applications. Our products are of an extremely high quality, offering high strength/weight ratios and a natural low coefficient of friction. Our vision is to become one of the UKs most successful specialist engineering companies, exporting to every corner of the world and earning our reputation for quality, reliability and unrivalled service.
Which of the benefits of Composites UK membership does your company regularly use?
Tufcot joined Composites UK in 2015 - a key part of our marketing plan for this year was to join at least three relevant memberships which will allow Tufcot as a brand to be published in areas where people who want composites will find us. Before 2015 we had never marketed in a structured way so it was key that the aims and goals of our plans were followed up with actions, like joining Composites UK.
Since joining we have attended a few events including the Rail Sector Showcase. We also utilise the sense of community being a member gives us by displaying our 'Member of' plaque when exhibiting at the Advanced Engineering Show which has helped us to push our brand. We have used the marketing seminars that were released this year at the reduced member rate in order to gain more knowledge on techniques in this area. The company regularly sends its press releases to Composites UK to be uploaded to the website and included in the e-newsletter, and being part of The Hub capabilities database has helped more people find us.
