Atlas Composites will be showcasing an array of new components and manufacturing capabilities for aerospace, motor sport and defence industries. In addition there will be information on their new recruitment drive and their new website will also be revealed.
The stand will feature new developments in aerospace capabilities, structural composite components, electronic enclosures, ballistic and missile manufacturing capabilities.
Atlas Composites will also be continuing their recent recruitment drive knowing the importance of teamwork for progress. Managing Director Shaun Moloney explains, ""It's not about diluting what we have, but adding quality people into an established team. Our aim is to always be productive and cost-effective and work with streamlined efficiency, but we understand that these are driven by key positions within the staff.""
Atlas are also celebrating the appointment of their 15th apprentice. Historically the majority of apprentices have been school leavers, as Atlas Composites work very closely with local education including a close relationship with Derby College. New recruit, 17-year-old Nathan Gregory however has a slight edge, as he already has a year of college under his belt.
Shaun Moloney Atlas Composites MD says, ""Although technology, equipment and processes change with the advancements, we have always believed that a continual investment in youth in manufacturing is one of the best investments you can make for your company's future. This is a tried and tested method that hasn't changed and will be one that we continue to carry on with in the future”
Finally, the new Atlas Composites website will be available to browse on stand. Moloney continues, ""Technology in manufacturing is faster moving than ever and we must be able to communicate this to our customers and the wider community. The Internet is the perfect platform for this which is why we invested in a website that enables us to update easily with valuable new information."" Atlas will be on Booth 408 at the Composites Engineering Show, 29th-30th September.
