Clean Rooms
Commissioned in February 2015, Forward Composites has a 280m2 (3014ft2) purpose-built clean room facility for the manufacture of composite components and tooling. The clean room is temperature and humidity controlled and maintains a positive pressure environment to minimise particle ingress.

The clean room has a fully reconfigurable internal layout allowing us to accommodate from the smallest to the very largest of jobs with the easiest of transitions.
