Andrew Moss, Chief Operating Officer at Umeco Plc of Leamington Spa, UK, says: “The new structure will allow Umeco Composites to focus on innovative technology and growth in its product portfolios, continuing to provide customers with value added services that capture new opportunities.”

The reasoning behind the restructuring is to retain the identities of individual brands at the same tame as maximising the benefits of being part of a larger group.

Umeco Composites Process Materials (UCPM) will be headed by Tim Cooper, the former Managing Director of Aerovac Systems, and will consist of the recently acquired IPM in Italy along with Richmond, Aerovac and Med-Lab.

Umeco Composites Structural Materials (UCSM) will be led by Jon Mabbitt, Managing Director of Advanced Composites Group Ltd, and includes JD Lincoln, GRPMS and Advanced Composites Group.
