GRP Manufacturing NORCO Composites & GRP

Originally established to manufacture boats, we have evolved & grown to include a wide range of GRP structures.

From CAD to Reality

We offer a full solution from CAD to delivery of final product. This includes 5 Axis CNC Patterns and direct or indirect mould tools, design for manufacture and CMM verification through to manufacturing, assembly and fit of the final product, in a variety of chosen process methods and materials.

Processes and Materials

Here at NORCO we have the capability to offer a range of material and process methods of manufacture including; traditional polyester and vinyl ester hard laminates, vac consolidation of cores, full vacuum infusion, epoxy, pre-preg glass or carbon.

We can manufacture marine products in hand lay, rtm light, resin and even pre-preg high gloss UV stable clear coat carbon fibre for every part of a boat from bow to stern, inside and out.

Finishing

We have a dedicated fully skilled finishing team and can offer primer type finishes ready for paint preparation or high gloss gelcoated surfaces. Our low bake oven is suitable for items up to 7m x 4m x 2m with larger structures such as hull patterns catered for by mobile tenting & extraction.

We acknowledge all our customers have individual requirements from paint finishes and batches of work or single jobs are each tailored to suit your needs. We also have 2 large scale composite ovens suitable for post-curing, hulls, decks and parts to 20m.

At NORCO, we have been producing GRP mouldings since its inception 30 years ago. We are specialise GRP manufacturing of double finished surfaces and split GRP mouldings, in addition to traditional single surface methods.

We are one of the UK’s largest GRP manufacturers of hulls, decks, superstructures and parts in glass fibre and composites, for the marine industry. We supply around 1250 different mouldings per week including shower trays, helms, radar arches, bathing platforms, garage doors, hardtops and flybridges and can manufacture decks and hulls to include engine heads, bulkheads, stringers and tanks.

Whether you are looking for a key supply partner of fully assembled small mouldings to complement your own production, or you require hulls and or decks (from 3m to 30m), we can offer assistance and a cost effective solution tailor-made to your needs.
