CME The Company
At Composite Materials Engineering, we pride ourselves on being the leaders in composite materials with the most up to date technology in materials and manufacturing processes to offer our customers a competitive advantage in their industry.

At CME we engineer, manufacture and process our own raw materials unique to the customer’s requirements. These materials are engineered to meet our customer’s specification when off the shelf materials or traditional materials will not achieve the performance required. This is achieved through advanced manufacturing techniques partnered with materials developments to achieve requires such as:

  • High strength-weight ratio
  • Achieve high loads and stiffness
  • Meet fire or heat ratings
  • Food contact approval
  • Impact performance
  • Corrosion issues
  • Design freedom over steel and other traditional materials

We have three manufacturing plants, offering turn-key solutions that are developed in collaboration with major industry sectors. These solutions incorporate design, testing, compounding, moulding, assembly and finishing. Our facilities are complemented by our technical support services, which include a materials laboratory, an engineering team, with CAD systems and tooling design expertise with our quality systems.

Our approach is to not sell you one technology or process, but pick the correct technology and process using our composite knowledge and expertise.
