The one name
in composites

We're about to bring all our businesses together under one name. Umeco.

But if you knew us as Advanced Composites Group, GRPMS, JD Lincoln or Richmond Aerovac, you can still look forward to the same world-leading innovation, personalised service and rapid response you've come to expect.

Our full website will be live in August 2012
