By working with the NCC, ARRK wish to gain a better understanding of some of the new cutting edge practices, techniques and materials in conjunction with its parent company Mitsui Chemicals, so that it can embrace some of these methods to ensure it is well placed to serve the needs of its customers well into the future.

Paul Patterson, General Manager for ARRK’s Nuneaton and Kings Norton sites, said: “The Nuneaton site are extremely pleased to renew our connection with the National Composites Centre. We see this affiliation as a strong part of the ARRK business strategy of improving its current processes and introducing cutting edge technology as the heart of its growth plans.

Truly exciting times ahead working with the NCC and its partners!”
