CTG Starts Moving into New Composites Centre of Excellence
UTC Aerospace Systems’ advanced composites manufacturer, CTG has completed the construction and fit out of a state-of-the-art Composite Centre of Excellence facility in Banbury, UK. The 137,000 sq. ft. facility was approached with an environmental and sustainable focus and will unite CTG’s six current sites into one location.
The move enables CTG to manufacture larger volumes quantities more effectively of advanced composite products and systems used across a range of high technology industries. Employees have already started moving in, and the facility will be fully operational by June 2013.
New amenities include dedicated production lines, a technical library, high-tech smart boards, a gymnasium and flexible meeting spaces. Dominic Cartwright, general manager said,
CTG’s Composite Centre of Excellence is a truly incredible facility and we are delighted with the outcome which will benefit our customers, employees, and the wider UTC organisation. It will ensure our operations are more streamlined and efficient, while sustaining the current innovative and agile environment. The facility ensures we stand out from our competitors as a leader in composite product technology now and in the future.
