BAE Systems (Farnborough, U.K.) announces that it is joining the National Composites Centre (NCC; Bristol, U.K.) Steering Board as the company confirms its long-term commitment to the NCC as a Tier 1 member.

Andy Schofield, manufacturing and materials technology director, BAE Systems Air, will be joining the Steering Board, established to support the NCC Leadership Team to deliver its business strategy and drive growth in the U.K. composites sector.
