Atlas Composites (hall 2B, F101) is expanding on the back of new contracts and prestigious supplier approvals.

The Derbyshire, UK-based manufacturer of carbon/glass/aramid fibre composite components and tooling for aerospace has won new orders worth more than $1 million. In addition to its preferred supplier status with Lockheed Martin UK Insys, the company is an approved supplier to BAE Systems, Bombardier, MBDA, Meggitt Thermal Systems and Nordam.

Managing director Shaun Moloney says gaining the prestigious Lockheed Martin UK Insys accreditation adds stability to Atlas and allows for more forward planning and subsequent growth. But Atlas is not resting, he says. The company continues to invest in plant and equipment with the acquisition of its second five-axis and third three-axis machines, increasing its capability as a composite component manufacturer.

Concept-to-construction capability is further supported by in-house CAD/CAM technology with the ability to receive any format of data; autoclaves; a clean-room facility; CNC materials preparation and final inspection, all in accordance with AS9100 and ISO 9001.
