PPA Group has completed its development of a Composite Facility at its headquarters in Wales.

PPA explains that states the £100,000 facility includes fully extracted lay-up and trimming rooms, and a dedicated storage facility. This investment will enable the PPA Group to develop its carbon fibre manufacturing and repair capabilities for all variations of composite materials, including glass fibre, carbon fibre and aramid fibre.

PPA says the expansion was necessary to fulfil increased orders of aviation-grade composite components including fairing panels, ducting, tray assemblies and interior components from a range of aerospace approved resins and cloths.

PPA Group also states it is several months into a knowledge transfer partnership with the University of Manchester and a post graduate associate, which is investigating and developing new innovations specifically in composite repair whilst exploring new techniques in composite design and manufacture.

Steve Moon, the PPA Group’s Operations Manager, said, “This investment will put the PPA Group at the forefront of composite repair and manufacture. With the emergence of new technologies and the rising trend in the use of composite materials, we made this substantial investment to ensure we remain a competitive and dynamic organisation. We are looking forward to realising a good return on this expenditure, which will inevitably result in the growth of our sales and workforce.”
