In order to accommodate their expansion plans, Creative Composites have recently awarded MSM the £1.2m contract to construct a 2,400m2 portal frame extension at their advanced Lisburn manufacturing plant.


Creative Composites are a leading UK manufacturer of high quality composite components in the automotive, aerospace and construction sectors.


The 26-week construction programme started during mid-May with completion planned for mid-November 2015. The works are programmed in phases to cause minimal disruption to manufacturing operations.
