Having made substantial investments over the past 3 years, including a new prepreg line, with a capacity of 1 million metres p.a., a new kitting and preforming facility, and new materials testing and process laboratories, we are now seeking a talented technical sales engineer to join the team. This role will focus on supplying prepreg and advanced composite materials into the Automotive, Defence, Motorsport and Aerospace industries.

Working with the sales support team, they will report to the Sales Manager.
The ideal candidate will be a technically-minded, motivated individual, having studied engineering to graduate level and with comprehensive knowledge of prepreg and advanced composite materials. The candidate must have experience in the composites industry and must hold a practical knowledge of processing methods for these materials. For the sales side of the role, we are looking for an individual who is professional and thrives on building relationships, with the ability to perform under pressure in a target-driven role.
