- R&I CENTERS
Cytec’s UK Technology Center in Heanor, England serves as our R&D facility for the Industrial Materials business. Established in 1975, by Roger Sloman, a British Chemist under the name ACG (Advanced Composites Group) Ltd focused on carbon fiber component manufacturing for the Motorsport industry. The plant was subsequently purchased by Umeco in 2006 and then Cytec in 2012. We began producing products across a wide range of markets and established ourselves as a leader of composite materials. With our highly trained project engineers, technicians and chemists, the Heanor site provides design, process development, formulation, and testing and evaluation services. The facility also acts as a vital hub for numerous multi-organization, international collaborative research programs.
