Chippenham, UK; 17 April 2023. Carbon ThreeSixty (CTS), leaders in advanced composite engineering, are pleased to announce the strengthening of their Engineering and R&D capability with the appointment of Alan Purves as Technical Manager.
As the company continues to grow and enter new sectors it is critical to keep up to date with emerging materials and manufacturing technologies. Carbon ThreeSixty’s ambitious growth plan will require manufacturing output to scale by several orders of magnitude. To achieve this the company has dedicated internal funding to further explore compression moulding and the uptake of thermoplastic materials. Alan’s role has been created to oversee this expansion and to lend additional Engineering experience to the rapidly growing technical team.
Alan has 20+ years experience working in the composites sector and brings with him a wide depth of knowledge and international networks. He will focus on building new and existing relationships and working with our internal departments to ensure we are well positioned with relevant stakeholders to meet and exceed expectations both externally and internally.
Carbon ThreeSixty Ltd now has a firm foothold in the Aerospace, Automotive, Energy and Defence markets, working alongside companies ranging from multinational Bluechips to local start-ups. Through 2023 Carbon ThreeSixty is expected to double in size. This level of continued growth is only possible due to the team of expert Engineers and dedicated Production staff.
Alan Purves commented “I’m very excited to be taking on this new role at Carbon ThreeSixty and to help them grow the business in a new direction, embracing new technologies and challenges along the way”
Ed Allnutt, Managing Director at Carbon ThreeSixty, said “We are delighted to have Alan join the CTS team. Alan has a wealth of experience in material systems and processes that we are only just starting to explore.
