Rockwood Composites has won Composite UK's Innovation in Manufacture Award.
Mark Crouchen and Douglas Johnstone represented the company at Composites UK's Industry Awards dinner held at the National Motorcycle Museum on 31 October.
Rockwood specialises in designing and manufacturing composites components for sectors including, aerospace, automotive, medical and nuclear. The Rockwood team has been supplying these industries for 25 years.
The award for Innovation in Manufacture was presented to Rockwood Composites for its work with Tokamak Energy to develop a high voltage, high stress, electrical insulation system using high pressure moulding of prepreg composites. Tokamak aims to achieve commercial fusion power with a view of providing energy into the grid by 2030.
“What a fantastic achievement for the whole Rockwood team," says Mark Crouchen, Managing Director of Rockwood Composites. "After attending the dinner and being surrounded by experts in our industry, I feel very honoured to have been recognised and rewarded for all our hard work. This award demonstrates the dedication from the team at Rockwood and the loyalty of our customers to trust us to continue to supply innovative products.”
