Structural engineering in Northern Ireland
Members with this Capability
CCP Gransden are flexible and dynamic AS9100 Accredited SME specialising in the design and manufacture of advanced composites. Based in Belfast Northern Ireland, CCP offer our clients performance improvements by the intelligent use of advanced composites and our world class manufacturing capabilities.
To meet the individual needs of our clients, CCP Gransden has invested in the creation of a unique and world class automated, flexible manufacturing cell to produce high quality aerospace grade advanced composites in a fast and repeatable manner. Our cell is centred around an 1100T Engel press that has a work area of 1.8x1.3m .
Our manufacturing capabilities currently include (but are not limited to); -
• Thermoforming of large continuous-fibre reinforced thermoplastics
• Composite Overmoulding utilising advanced thermoplastic polymers
• High Pressure RTM including variations such as GAP RTM and WET RTM
• Compression Moulding
• Prepreg Curing
• Filament Winding
• Wet Lamination
We have over 10 processes available in-house for manufacturing advanced composites from both Thermosets and Thermoplastics (including continuous fibre reinforced PEEK, PPS and PEI), thereby giving us increased flexibility to meet the challenging needs of our clients. We can facilitate supply in low, medium and high volumes (thanks to our ability to manufacture composites in as little as 1 minute using our state of the art automated manufacturing processes and lean manufacturing approach).

Maine Surface Finishing Ltd is a specialist provider of protective coatings and steel fabrication, working as a strategic supply chain partner to an impressive client base of internationally respected customers, spanning a range of sectors, including Materials Handling, Automotive, Oil & Gas and Construction.
Maine Surface Finishing has over 17 years’ experience in the application of Powder and Wet Paint protective coatings to mild steel, aluminum, plastic, glass fibre and galvanised substrates. Our ICATS (Industrial Coatings Applicator Training Scheme) approved applicators and in-house ICorr (Institute of Corrosion) qualified inspectors supply shop applied paint systems to NORSOK and ISO Standards.
Our 20,000 sq ft fabrication facility is equipped with 2 x 10 tonne and 2 x 5 tonne gantry cranes. We have the technical expertise and production capabilities to fabricate complex assemblies and sub-assemblies consistently to the highest quality standards, whilst achieving OTIF (on-time-in-full) delivery. Our in-house personnel can provide a comprehensive service - from complete fabrication through to surface finishing, delivery, supported by a highly experienced technical advisory service.
Our welders are highly competent in MIG and TIG - skilled in welding a range of substrates including mild steel, stainless steel and aluminum; where required, we can deploy coded welders to meet customer specifications.
