Composite Integration has carried out both collaborative and internal Research and Development activities since its beginnings in 2002. These activities have continued to develop and grow. Dr Tim Searle CEng MIMechE has supported our internal team for several years on a consultancy basis, and we are delighted to announce that he has joined the company full time in a new position of Research and Development Director.
Tim has a long and successful background in Composites, having started as a Marine Engineering Student at the University of Plymouth, followed by his PhD in Composites before a period lecturing and consulting as the Commercial Manager with the Advanced Composites Manufacturing Centre (ACMC) at Plymouth. Tim set up a private composites consultancy company, Composite Innovations Ltd in 2005 and carried out a very wide range of commercial research projects over the past 16 years.
More recently, the Research and Development work of both Composite Integration and Composite Innovations Ltd has been highly complementary and we look forward to continuing this work with new and existing customers within Composite Integrations’ Research & Development division.
