Given its close proximity to the Midland Mainline, Ilkeston is the largest town in the country without a train station, a parody which Atlas Composites Managing Director Shaun Moloney would like to see reversed.
With the UK composites industry – driven by SME’s such as Atlas Composites with exceptional growth of 12% in 2011 – expected to grow by around 8% per annum to 2020, the need to continually improve the local infrastructure cannot be understated.
Dubbed ‘composites valley’ due to the proximity of composites expertise, the surrounding area has a reputation for manufacturing excellence to uphold, explains Moloney.
“For Atlas Composites the provision of a passenger rail service in Ilkeston will help support business growth, improve job prosperity and remove potential barriers for business networking” said Moloney.
“As a local employer who grew up and served an apprenticeship in the area I am passionate to see Ilkeston and the wider community capitalise on any opportunities to create economic growth through manufacturing” stated Moloney.
Having initially started his composites business in 1997, Atlas Composites is now a leading player with 15 years at the forefront of UK composites manufacturing.
Atlas Composites currently employ 68 staff with a turnover approaching £4m.
With composites and SME’s like Atlas Composites representing the core of the UK’s advanced engineering economic recovery it may be an argument the politicians will find hard to ignore.
