The JEC Composites Show saw the launch of our unique new web-based information service on composite materials, http://www.netcomposites.com.
This new industry portal gives the very latest composites news, events information and career opportunities alongside a forum for discussion on composites and a comprehensive 60-page guide to composites for those new to the subject. The web site also integrates six of the world’s most comprehensive composites stores, holding well over 500 books, videos, CDs, market reports, journals and software products, all on composites.
The objective of the site is to educate and inform all those involved in composites, bringing together the best information to benefit the whole composites industry. The new on-line presence for NetComposites, goes part way towards our business objective of knowledge development and provision in composites.
You can visit the new web site at http://www.netcomposites.com, or contact Gordon Bishop at NetComposites by phone on +44 7641 119898 or by email: email@example.com
