Composite Successes Following Business Restructure
We recently restructured our business to provide a more versatile and agile resource pool to our customers, and we’ve been seeing the benefits!
Composites design and analysis has been a core part of the Frewer Engineering service offering for twenty years since 2002, when the company was founded on the delivery of Aero-grade Composites design and analysis services, predominantly to the Space sector. Recognised and audited design authority and governance has been in place throughout this long history, geared for delivery to these highly regulated industry sectors.
Our recent restructure was implemented in response to customer and market demands for higher levels of delivery-focus, with material-agnostic design development for our Aerospace customers. The re-plan recognises the talent of our core technical Composites team and is expected to provide significant opportunities for career development, breadth-of-experience and longer-term growth.
Our customers have greater access to our technical workforce, now including engineering software developers, design specialists and structural specialists from the wider company, as well as new additions through recruitment, bringing a wealth of experience from previous organisations and projects, alongside a wider University catchment.
Frewer Engineering Composites service offering now includes:
Dharam Randhawa – has been with Frewer Engineering for approximately ten years and has been a stalwart contributor to both Composites and Metallics projects throughout. Dharam is stepping up as Engineering Lead and Technical Specialist in the field of Composites Engineering.
