Just like the legendary phoenix, Forward Composites was born from the ashes of its predecessor, Lola Composites which went into administration in May 2012.
After ten months of successful trading whilst in administration, Paul Jackson, formerly Commercial Director at Lola, along with business partner Ed Collings purchased the business on 22 March, the very day that it was due to be auctioned off.
Many of the initial team can also trace their roots back to Lola and were selected for their expertise, enthusiasm and wealth of experience. This experienced team quickly positioned Forward as a trusted and reliable supplier of innovative technical solutions and high achieving performance products.
Starting with only one major order, for 16 UAV's, Forward has continued to grow and now offers a comprehensive range of engineering and manufacturing services.
