Umeco companies to rebrand at JEC Europe 2012


Composites group Umeco is rebranding its group companies. Advanced Composites Group, GRPMS, JD Lincoln and Richmond Aerovac, are all being rebranded under the Umeco brand name at JEC Europe 2012 in Paris later this month whilst showcasing a range of exciting new products and technologies.

Umeco’s activities are truly global and focused on delivering advanced composites innovation and a range of services, from structural and process materials to tooling and distribution solutions to its customers.

Umeco will be exhibiting a number of key projects at JEC Europe 2012, including:

Sahara Force India Formula One Team’s 2011 (VJM04) race car illustrating the widespread application of Umeco’s advanced prepregs for structural and bodywork applications in this high performance sector

A staggered sandwich panel demonstrating how Umeco’s Structural & Process materials’ products work harmoniously in the production of large Out-of-Autoclave (OoA) structures

An Surrey Satellite Technology ltd (SSTL) modular, small scale satellite structure demonstrator manufactured from Umeco’s MTM 44-1 unidirectional and woven prepregs. The combination of intelligent design and low density of MTM 44-1 produces a lightweight, integrated component

A prototype of the ‘TEMA’ staircase, manufactured by LoSon s.r.l., depicting the application of Umeco’s LTM 12 tooling prepregs, MTM 57 OoA structural prepregs and vacuum bagging materials to manufacture a bespoke, elegant five-metre high staircase as a masterpiece for an Italian aerospace company.

Nigel Blatherwick, Strategic Marketing Director at Umeco, said: “2012 is milestone for Umeco, uniting all its businesses under one global brand. JEC is the ideal exhibition to unveil the group’s new identity to the composites industry and to our customers, and to showcase our latest products developments. We look forward to another successful event.”
