Prepreg, fabric and adhesives specialist Amber Composites (Langley Mill, Nottinghamshire, U.K.) reported on April 18 that it has been selected to take part in an exhibition demonstrating the very best of British manufacturing this summer.

Beating competition from hundreds of U.K. companies, Amber Composites will be featureed in the government’s Make it in Great Britain exhibition at the Science Museum during the Olympic and Paralympic Games this summer.

Amber Composites will showcase its latest manufacturing products and processes, and educate visitors about the value of manufacturing to U.K. business. The exhibition is the culmination of the Make it in Great Britain campaign, an initiative launched last year by the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills that aims to challenge outdated opinions and transform the image of modern manufacturing.

Amber Composites is a manufacturer of high-performance composite materials used by a diverse set of industries including motorsport, automotive, aerospace, communications, marine and wind energy.

Jonathan McQueen, Amber Composites managing director, says, “We are honored to have been selected as one of the best British manufacturing companies. With all eyes on the U.K. this summer, it’s great to be part of a program that brings attention to the world- class manufacturing capabilities of the U.K.”

U.K. Business Minister Mark Prisk says, “Manufacturing accounts for 8 percent of total U.K. employment and well over half of export goods, yet current perceptions of the industry are out of date and do not reflect that reality. We have selected a really exciting mix of exhibits, and I hope that as many people as possible visit the exhibition and see all of the great examples of British design and manufacturing – it will be spectacular.”

Other companies chosen for the exhibit include Airbus, Bombardier, GKN, McLaren, Messier-Dowty, Rolls-Royce and Siemens.
