Haydale opens new aerospace division, rebrands subsidiary

Haydale Ltd., a leader in the development of enhanced graphene and nanoparticulate materials, has announced a number of important developments at its EPL Composite Solutions Ltd subsidiary acquired in 2014.

With immediate effect, EPL Composite Solutions Ltd will now trade as Haydale Composite Solutions Limited (HCS), a wholly owned subsidiary of Haydale Graphene Industries Plc.

HCS, as a key business unit of Haydale, has already started to focus on developing markets for graphene enhanced polymers, polymer coatings and polymer composites. This builds on EPL's 22 years of experience in introducing new composite processes, products, and advanced materials into established markets in the energy, infrastructure and transport sectors.

As part of the focus HCS also announce the creation of a new aerospace unit within the composite division to focus on the development of graphene enhanced composite materials for the aerospace industry. To fast track this particular area of expertise HCS are pleased to announce the appointment of Ebby Shahidi as Director of Aerospace and defence projects and Quentin Fontana as Collaborative R&D Manager. Both Ebby and Quentin have substantial experience in advanced composite materials having previously worked at Cytec and at the forefront of introducing new materials into the highly regulated aerospace market and other advanced composite markets.

Commenting on these changes, Ray Gibbs, Haydale Chief Executive said "The integration of the composites business has gone very well and I am particularly pleased with the appointments announced which bring additional specific focused knowledge and experience. There is no doubt that the addition of our functionalised materials is adding substantial mechanical properties to the traditional composites EPL has been using for years. This is opening up a range of new and exciting opportunities for not only HCS but the Haydale group.

Gerry Boyce, Managing Director of HCS added "Our mission as a premier R&D outsourcing organisation is to assist our clients to achieve their composite, polymer and product goals from design to prototype, testing and certification. Through our specialist knowledge in the application of graphene in polymers and composites, we can further enhance material performance bringing about a major competitive advantage. Building on EPL's background experience, HCS's aim is to become recognised as being a world leading innovative solution provider and a science, product and technology partner."
