Our Facilities

Velocity Composites operates from its purpose built 26,000 sq ft facility located in the heart of the UK’s North West Aerospace cluster. On site we have all production, raw material management, product engineering and customer support functions under one roof to offer the most responsive service to our client base.

Due to the nature of the products we supply, all our manufacturing is performed within our fully climate controlled area in order to provide a temperature, humidity and particle controlled environment to well within our customers' and international specifications.

In addition to the extensive industry experience of our key personnel we utilise the latest software to develop innovative products to deliver fully integrated supply chain services to our customers.

Our Locations

Velocity Composites operates from two purpose built facilities located in the UK at the following locations:

Burnley, Lancashire - UK North and HQ

The Burnley facilities were selected as a result of the close proximity to major aerospace manufacturers, such as Safran Nacelles, BAE Systems and Kaman Composites in the North West of England. The Burnley facility is both AS9100 and AS9120 approved and provides a cleanroom with cutting, welding and sewing equipment; a separate technical centre enabling the Company to design, engineer and test new products without utilising production capacity; and modular freezers for the storage of materials at the required temperatures.

On site, Velocity Composites has all production, raw material management, product engineering and client support functions. Due to the nature of the products supplied, Velocity Composites manufacturing is performed within a fully climate controlled cleanroom in order to provide a temperature, humidity and particle controlled environment compliant with the requirements of both Velocity Composites clients’ and international specifications. The Burnley facility houses the Company’s head office administration and is considered to be the operational headquarters.

Fareham, Hampshire - UK South

Velocity Composites acquired an additional site in September 2016 in Fareham to service additional customers within the Southern portion of England and also to offer its services to mainland northern Europe, given the frequent ferry links from Portsmouth and Southampton to various French terminals. Whilst the Fareham facility is a full manufacturing plant, it does not require head office administration and is therefore deemed to be a satellite site rather than a main hub. Production at Fareham commenced in March 2017 after the site was granted both AS9100 and Airbus approvals in January and February 2017, respectively.

As the Fareham site was designed to be close to its customers, the Directors believe that there is an adequate supply of labour, management and resources within the local area suited to Velocity's requirements.
