Flying the Flag for the British Composites Industry

05 April 2002

""Flying the flag"" for the British Composites Industry, the BPF will have its own stand at JEC 2002, promoting its Composites Group and the UK Composites industry.

13 Companies will form the BPF-managed British Group and will exhibit both within the British Pavilion and independently. As the British Group sponsor, the BPF has also secured Trade Partners UK SESA grant funding on behalf of these companies providing a cost-effective presence for British industry at this major composites show. The grant covers 60% of expenditure on stand space and construction - up to a total of £2,300 for each eligible business and also supplementary information for first time exhibitors.

The companies exhibiting with the BPF are as follows:

- Chelton Composites Group
- Cytec Engineered Materials
- Exchem Mining & Construction
- Formax UK Ltd
- IMSM Ltd
- Plastech TT Ltd
- Pultrex Ltd
- The Rossendale Combining Company Ltd
- Scott Bader Co Ltd
- SP Systems
- Technical Fibre Products
- Texkimp Ltd
- West and Senior Ltd

Many more British companies will also be exhibiting independently.

JEC is the ideal platform for the BPF to highlight the strengths of the composites industry and promote UK business abroad.

The BPF Composites Group exists to enhance the image of Composite Materials to end-users and to provide a common platform for information/expertise exchange and resource sharing. The Group is active in creating and revising standards in the UK and Europe and is represented in Europe by GPRMC, the European composites trade association. The BPF's Composites Group is kept updated on potential and actual changes to relevant regulations. The Group is particularly interested in issues such as the Styrene Risk Assessment, Construction Products Directive (fire testing and drinking water), Packaging and Packaging Waste Regulations, the EU Chemicals Policy, and publicising the recyclability of composites.
