Composites UK has unveiled the shortlist for its 2017 Industry Awards, which will be presented at its annual awards dinner on 1 November at the National Motorcycle Museum in Birmingham, UK, coinciding with the Advanced Engineering Show.

  • Innovation in Manufacture – Cygnet Texkimp and MHI Vestas Offshore;
  • Innovation in Design – Cape and Lentus Composites;
  • Innovation in Materials – FTI Group and Tods Aerospace;
  • Trainee/Apprentice Award – Sigmatex (Thomas Rockwood) and Teledyne CML (Michael Dodd);
  • Employer of the Year – MHI Vestas Offshore and National Composites Centre;
  • Employee of the Year – MPM (Nick Robinson) and Safran (Stephen Dyer).

The 2017 winning entries already announced are:

  • Health and Safety Award – Hexion;
  • Environmental/Sustainability Award – Sigmatex.

The Innovation Award nominees will be showcasing their work at an open forum presentation session at the Advanced Engineering Show on 1 November at 2-3 pm.
