Carbon-composite manufacturer moves HQ to Silverstone Park

Silverstone Composites, which has revolutionised carbon-composite manufacturing for top-level motorsport, has located to 4,540 sq ft premises at Silverstone Park.

“The main purpose is to create a new base for our motorsport customers,” said founder Marcus Trofimov.

“We’re in a period of growth and Silverstone Park gives us a position on the map; that’s key for us. Geographically, it makes sense. It’s the home of British racing, and we wanted to be a part of that.”

Silverstone Composites’ new HQ at Silverstone Park will become its main manufacturing depot – ten of its eleven full-time staff are composite technicians. Parts produced will be used in Formula 1, World Rallying and Formula E amongst others.

Silverstone Composites’ existing premises in nearby Stoke Bruerne will be used to train young talent and explore business opportunities in other high-tech sectors.

Marcus added: “We’re keen to support local colleges and universities and already we’ve been active at Oxford Brookes and the Silverstone University Technology College (UTC).”
