Velocity Composites begins US manufacturing

Velocity Composites says that it has successfully manufactured the first composite production kits at its new manufacturing facility in Alabama, USA.

This follows the signing of a five-year work package agreement in 2022 GKN Aerospace in the US, expected to be worth more US$100 million in revenue.

"This is a major milestone for Velocity Composites as we expand into North America,” said Jon Bridges, chief executive of Velocity Composites. “Our targeted business development activities are further enhanced by having a capable advanced manufacturing site in North America with significant capacity to grow."
