Equipment and Facilities

ÉireComposites Provides a wide range of design, manufacture and test services in our 6000M2 Facility. Our extensive experience combined with our state-of-the-art facilities and advanced design capabilities make us a one stop shop for composites process and product development. We have experience in both thermoset and thermoplastic parts, and we have parts flying on commercial aircraft for over a decade. We have also developed our own patented composite manufacturing technologies which take advantage of the quick cycle times possible with thermoplastic composites.
