Composites UK Launches 2018 Industry Awards

Composites UK has opened the entry process for its 2018 Composites Industry Awards.

As in previous years the eight categories are:

  • Innovation in Composite Design, Materials and Manufacturing;
  • Employer of the Year;
  • Employee of the Year;
  • Trainee/Apprentice of the Year;
  • Health and Safety Award;
  • Environmental/Sustainability Award.

There will also be a special award on the evening presented to someone who has shown an outstanding contribution to the UK composites industry.

Entry is open to both members and non-members of the association; the only criteria is that the application must be made by a UK company.

The deadline for entries is 30 June 2018, with judging taking place over the summer. A shortlist of two companies/individuals per category will then be revealed in September. Those selected will be invited to attend the awards dinner on 31 October where the winners will be announced, with those shortlisted in the Innovation categories being given the opportunity to present in a dedicated forum session at the neighbouring Advanced Engineering Show on the same day.

“Our award holds great significance for us because it not only recognises the work of UK organisations developing truly innovative technology for the global market, but also our commitment to supporting, developing and employing a new generation of engineering talent,” says Luke Vardy, Managing Director of Cygnet Texkimp, which won the Innovation in Composites Manufacturing Award last year.

Case studies of previous winners can be found on the Composites UK website, as can this year’s entry forms. Bookings for the dinner are currently being taken at a discounted early-bird rate.

Powertrains, be they conventional, hybrid or fully electric, will need to be light in weight if carmakers are to meet the stringent regulations on carbon dioxide emissions (CO2) to come into force in 2025 – and composites will be key to making this happen. This was the message highlighted at the Lightweight Composite Solutions Conference organised by Vyncolit and Sumitomo Bakelite Co Ltd and held in Gent, Belgium.
