Cristex has been awarded Employer of the Year at the Composites UK Industry Awards Dinner. A fantastic achievement to recognise all the hard work that has gone in to create a workplace where employees feel valued and cared for.
Danielle Roseler, HR and marketing manager commented: “We are absolutely thrilled to have won this award, we have worked hard over the past few years implementing our internal engagement strategy, from wellbeing Wednesdays which includes yoga, smoothie making and more, to employee of the month to name but a few.”
Cristex Composite Materials exhibited at Advanced Engineering UK for its eleventh consecutive year. The show took place on the 2-3 of November 2022 at the NEC in Birmingham.
Scott Singleton, operations manager commented: “The show was a great success, and we got the opportunity to meet with new and existing customers as well as network and engage in conversations about some of the latest developments within the composites industry.”
Cristex alongside its suppliers, Saertex, Angeloni Group, Elantas and Eurocarbon had a range of materials and systems on display.
Saertex had a key focus on the development of sustainable composite materials, featuring flax fibre as part of its non-crimp fabric range. The company’s recent collaboration with Terre Di Lin aims to make a significant contribution towards minimising the consumption of non-renewable resources and fossil fuels. Flax fibre is a renewable resource, with minimal environmental impact during processing.
The Angeloni Group focused on woven fabrics, decorative fabrics and stabilising webs. Such webs are the next generation of stabilising technology and can be applied to fabrics to prevent fraying when being cut and shaped, without adding significant weight.
Elantas showcased their range of epoxy resins systems and adhesives for a variety of manufacturing methods, such as hand layup, vacuum infusion, hot press and RTM.
