Composites UK, the Trade Association for the UK composites industry has launched a map version of all of the companies in the UK composites supply chain. This comprises around 1400 organisations, of which 250 have completed an online profile.

  • Free: A map of all Composites UK Member companies which is available for everyone to view.
  • Basic: Published (all companies on the Hub with a completed profile) and member organisations by activity and market.
  • Professional:  All 1400 organisations on the Hub split by Local Enterprise Partnership/Economic Development Agency regions, activity and market.

More maps will be added to the tool in due course. To complete a company profile contact Mark Humphrey, data officer, on
