Transport sector customers are increasingly looking for innovative ways to reduce weight and increase output rates for producing composites parts, and to meet environmental emissions and recycling legislative targets by using lightweight composite laminates instead of heavier, more traditional engineering materials, such as sheet metal and aluminium.

MSA Manufacturing offers vehicle manufacturers and tier 1 part suppliers a range of services to help find solutions to these design engineering and processing challenges.

The MSA team has extensive experience in cutting e-glass and carbon fibre dry fabrics, producing 2D preforms, cutting and shaping foam and honeycomb cores, as well as cutting and kitting carbon fibre prepreg shapes. You’ll find our core and reinforcement kits in the Wrightbus Routemaster London Bus, pick-up truck hardtops, camper vans and caravans, and numerous airline seats, for example.
