In the five years of operation, the NCC has supported UK industry growth by working with hundreds of SMEs and primes across more than ten different sectors.

As an SME undergoing rapid expansion, it is invaluable to have access to the centre’s resources and network. We are continuously striving to build on our technological know-how to benefit our customers and the wider composites community, so the fit couldn't be better.”
