Norco, a Dorset based composite manufacturer, has appointed James Luby as the new Production Manager at the company’s dedicated composites manufacturing centre. Mr Luby joined Norco in October 2018 as a Project Engineer and has been quick to make an impact in the business with his expertise and proactive attitude.

His professional career began at the composite manufacturer United Aerospace in Pembrokeshire as a Production Engineer. After three years, he moved to AIM Altitude (a provider of aircraft interiors) as a CAD/CAM Programmer. He swiftly progressed to CNC Supervisor and then finally Production Engineer before moving to Norco.

“Coming from an aerospace background, James brings a wealth of production knowledge and high-quality standards to our Composites Centre,” commented Mark Northey, the Managing Director of Norco. “He will manage all aspects of the centre’s operations including all current & new production, production planning, procurement, scheduling and manufacturing engineering.”

The challenges and goals within the Production Manager role include implementing a Continuous Improvement methodology throughout the business, developing standardised processes and driving process improvement.

Mr Luby is taking over from Steve Cox who joined Norco in 2017. Mr Cox has been key to the expansion of the Composites Centre and recruiting James. They both worked together at previous employment and James will take on the mantle.

“I’m really looking forward to the challenge ahead, my primary focus will be to ensure projects are delivered ‘on-time’ and ‘on-budget’, whilst meeting the needs of our current customers and establishing relationships with new customers,” commented Mr Luby.

With over 35 members of skilled staff stationed at Norco’s Composites Centre, he will have the opportunity to implement his own processes and strategies to ensure the Composites division of the business is profitable and continues to grow.
