Industrialised, practical composites

Cecence are pioneers of scaled production and practical design for the manufacture of high-strength, lightweight, Fire, Smoke and Toxicity (FST) compliant components for the mass transportation and defence sectors.

About usOur services

Cecence has the technology and experience to deliver scaled production and practical design for the manufacture of composite components.


We start with the end in mind with end-to-end services enabling an efficient approach to lightweighting, FST compliance and sustainability.  Cecence support you across the whole technology readiness level (TRL) spectrum.

Scaled Manufacture

Cecence are proven manufacturers of composite components at an industrial scale, having amongst other production lines, delivered high volumes of in-flight AS9100 compliant seatbacks.

Product Development

With an ethos of “Right Fibre, Right Application”, and a commitment to excellence and the innovative use of NDT, Cecence development cycles are fast and highly effective.

Design & Engineering

The Cecence award-winning engineers are proven to make innovation not only tangible, but uniquely fit for purpose, economical and repeatable at scale.

 SECTORS

Strong, lightweight, FST compliant parts for the Mass Transportation and Defence sectors.


The Cecence background in F1 and Marine racing, is helping to drive true innovation at scale for sectors struggling with weight, carbon footprint and high through-life costs.
