‘Meet the buyer’ event

Composites UK is hosting an event for SME suppliers to connect with potential buyers of composite parts and materials.

It takes place on 11 May at the Yeovil, UK site of Leonardo Helicopters, a manufacturer of rotary aircraft for commercial, public service, and security and defence applications.

Up to 80 representatives can attend, the composites organization said, with the opportunity to run a table top display and pitch to other companies.

“A common theme from our members is that as SMEs they cannot get a ‘foot in the door’ with the Tier 1s,” said Diane Alexander, event manager at Composites UK. “This event is the perfect occasion for our members and suppliers in the composite industry to showcase their products to the team at Leonardo and put themselves forward for potential future business.”

“This event […] will offer opportunities to consider new materials, processes and testing techniques that can drive competitiveness within aerospace applications,” added Austin Chick, UK strategy and development manager at Leonardo Helicopters.
