“Composites UK provides both a support network and marketing platform for its members. It facilitates connections, educates and campaigns, and encourages collaborative partnerships. It is a key enabler for growth for businesses large and small. Its work will be even more vital as the UK economy seeks to bounce back from the effects of the pandemic.”

Samantha Bunyan, Head of Industry Engagement & Sustainability, Cecence

“Composites UK has been really important to us as a company over the last few years. It provides access to industry specific technical advice that an SME like us would struggle to source otherwise. Additionally, the networking and technical forum provide an excellent place for us to keep up to date with industry developments and share some of our own thinking to test our planning assumptions.”

Lyndon Sanders, Director, Far-UK

Membership Referral Scheme

If a company joins Composites UK after being referred to us through a current member, the current member will receive 10% of the new member’s fee off their next renewal invoice. So for example…

If you recommend a company who joins us at the rate of £2000.00, you will get a £200 discount off your renewal. The more companies you refer, the bigger the discount you receive, up to the point where your renewal becomes £0.

You must ensure that the referred company mentions you in the relevant section of the membership application form to qualify as discounts will not be applied retrospectively.
