About

The UK's Leading Carbon Fibre Specialists

Crosby Composites is a leading carbon fibre engineering company supplying customers worldwide. Established in 1982, the company has constantly improved production techniques and invested in the latest technologies to provide cost effective components and achieve shorter lead times.

We offer composite solutions for both one-off prototype components, as well as larger production runs. Our accuracy, reliability and fast turn around time allows us to work with a large variety of industries, from high precision Formula One cars and Aerospace to the longer production runs and visual standards of the automotive and medical industries.

Our vast facilities mean we can provide for all your composite needs, from concept to final component. We have several CAD stations for design and conceptual work. 7 CNC machines for tooling block patterns, aluminium moulds and machining components. Also, we have a large laminating department, with 3 autoclaves varying in size, and a trim and fitting department. Finally, to ensure your component is to specification before leaving our premises, we have a technologically advanced inspection department.

We believe that this results in the client feeling secure in the knowledge that we are one of the only one stop composites companies in the country and that there is no misconnection between several subcontractors as we are capable of doing it all completely in house.

Carbon Fibre for F1 (Formula 1)

Carbon fibre has been at the forefront of Formula One since the early 1980's. Along with aerospace this industry sector continues to push the boundaries and develop new and exciting manufacturing techniques.

Due to the speed of the development that Formula One cars require throughout the season we as a company are comfortable with narrow timeframes and limited production volumes whilst working to the highest accuracy and attention to detail.

Over recent years we have developed several new manufacturing technologies specifically for the Formula One Industry. We are now able to pass these on to the non Formula One applications where it is deemed an advantage.

Unfortunately due to the nature of this work we are not at liberty to divulge specifics of who we produce components for but can state that we currently manufacture all major areas of the car and that we work for the majority of the grid in one form or another, including:

  • Front Brake Ducts
  • Rear Brake Ducts
  • Front Wings
  • Rear Wings
  • Steering Wheels
  • Heat Shields
  • KERS Boxes
  • Electrical Boxes
  • Bodywork
  • Side pods
  • Roll Hoop Cameras

Carbon Fibre for Motorsport

Composites were introduced to mainstream motorsport as soon as Formula One employed the material to manufacture the majority of the car. Single seaters as a subsidiary of Formula One was where the technology could be easily integrated, however that said composites are so versatile that it didn't take too long for the likes of saloon and prototypes to use them either.

Currently most modern day motorsports use composites, from Lemans Sportscars to Karting. As a guide here is a list of the current sectors we work in:

  • Lemans Sportscars
  • World Rally Championship
  • GT Racing
  • World and British Touring Cars
  • Moto GP
  • Formula 3
  • Formula Ford
  • Formula Vee
  • GP2
  • Grandprix Masters
  • Indy car
  • Historic Formula One

We are always looking to work in other areas of motorsport and believe we can add a considerable amount of composite experience to your project.
