NetComposites has acquired James Quinn Associates Ltd (JQAL), an engineering consultancy specialising in structural analysis of polymer composites by finite element analysis (FEA).
Established by Jim Quinn in 1991, JQAL offers expertise in the design, specification, production engineering and failure inspection of polymer composites; covering everything from GRP to advanced composites.
This acquisition is a natural step in the growth of NetComposites’ consultancy business which already offers a range of independent, expert services in the field of polymer composites. It follows the earlier acquisition of JQAL’s training business.
Ben Hargreaves, NetComposites’ Consultancy Manager, said, “The acquisition of JQAL is a great opportunity for NetComposites. Adding FEA expertise to our existing range of capabilities means we are now better placed to provide our clients with a full-service offering covering all of their composites needs. Jim has been involved with polymer composites for over forty years. During that time he has developed a wealth of experience and built a fantastic reputation in the field. We are really pleased that Jim will continue to work alongside our existing team of consultants as we continue to develop this area of the business.”
Jim Quinn commented on the acquisition, “I am confident in NetComposites’ ability to continue to offer the same service and look forward to working alongside the team going forward.”
Both Jim Quinn and Ben Hargreaves invite you to meet them on Tuesday 8th March, where they will be available to answer any questions between 3pm and 5pm on the NetComposites stand.
