With a broad experience of composites in multiple sectors, King comes to Gen 2 Carbon from MTAG Composites. His previous roles within the composites industry include project engineering, innovation, project development and technical sales. As an early advocate of recycled non-woven carbon fibre, King worked on the R&D to vacuum infuse the nonwoven material into a commercially viable product having successfully substituted glass fibre-based infusion products with Gen 2 Carbon’s 100 per cent carbon product. King also led the RS Electric Boats’ ‘Pulse 63’ project which now incorporates the same 100 per cent carbon fibre material within the zero-emission electric RIB, the company said in a press release.
Using his manufacturing process, application knowledge and sales acumen, King hopes to develop considerable uptake of the materials manufactured by Gen 2 Carbon into several key sectors in the UK and global composites market. Supporting existing commercial functions, King aims to capitalise on the exceptional developments the business has made since its transition from ELG Carbon Fibre, helping to secure the future of recycled carbon fibre products as a staple material in the world of composites manufacturing and beyond.
