Our Capabilities

Capabilities Overview

  • Project Management

    Retrac Composites project managers serve as an extension of your purchasing department or design team to ensure your finished components inherit the full benefits of our composites knowledge.

    Each project manager has been part of the company for 10 years or more and has been promoted internally from within starting as trainee Composite technicians, through supervisory roles and onto project engineering and management. This gives us a sound base and knowledge of the manufacturing process and requirements. We have all seen and done it!
