Composites UK reports that composite component manufacturer Safran Nacelles received business opportunies from its participation at Composites UK’s North West Regional Roadshow which took place near Manchester, UK.

A connection was made with the University of Liverpool’s Formula Student team who had a table-top display the event. Safran has since assisted with them with their work, Composites UK says.

‘I am confident that the working relationship will grow stronger and stronger and last for several years,’ said Stephen Dyer, Safran’s trainer for composites. ‘We are hoping to send a few of our apprentices to Liverpool University in the next few weeks to carry on the work we have started.

Safran’s participation and case study presentation ‘Working to the Future through Apprenticeships’ at the event also resulted in an on-site meeting with Mac Measuria from JNV Composites and Pete Redfern from Tameside College who were looking to set up a training school similar to what is already in place at Safran.

‘It is worth promoting some of the working relationships that can be established through networking at these conferences and the benefits all parties can take from these new working relationships,’ added Dyer.

The Composites UK event calendar for 2018 will be announced on the Composites UK website.
