CTG, a Collins Aerospace company, is a leader in the design, development and manufacture of advanced composite products and systems for the aerospace industry specialising in filament winding.
Part of the Collins Aerospace family, our state of the art 137,000 square foot Composite Centre of Excellence facility has enabled us to become industry leaders for the production of composite products and systems within the aerospace market. We have a global and well established reputation for delivering high-quality, innovative development solutions for:
CTG are renowned for having a flexible and largely automated production capability that is able to meet demanding customer requirements. We specialise in high-volume composites and our innovative solutions ensure that we can bring products to market in a timely manner. We have a full aerospace qualification test capability with the bulk of testing being undertaken in house at our Banbury facility. CTG has ISO 9001, AS 9100 and ISO 14001 accreditations for its quality and environmental management.
Our composite products in comparison to metals and alloys benefit our customers in a number of ways:
CTG is also at the forefront of composite research exploring the manufacture of complex shapes and adjustable fittings, without compromising on weight or structural integrity. This Team has also developed advanced composite transmission shafts which provide a three fold weight advantage over the titanium equivalent.
Our composite facility is home to the latest technological equipment in our field. The automated production line can manufacture a fuel pipe in less than four minutes. These fuel pipes provide protection from lightning strike damage, and are built to last the entire life of the aircraft without any maintenance required.
We have a highly-skilled Research and Development team. One of their major successes includes the development and production of advanced transmission shaft. A composite shaft weighs a mere 280 grams per meter, but the titanium equivalent weighs 1,200 grams – an impressive weight saving.
Our parent company, Collins Aerospace, is one of the largest suppliers of advanced technological aerospace and defence products in the world. They design, manufacture, and service systems and components for a range of aerospace platforms. They also offer the ability to provide integrated solutions.

CTG first made composite products for the medical and later automotive industry. Using its experience from automotive carbon composite shafts and its patented composite to metal joining technology, CTG developed High Lift Shafts for A330 and A400M. Using its knowledge of filament winding glass fibre CTG developed composite fuel pipes for A350.
CTG continued to grow and when Goodrich acquired it they built a new 137,000 square foot Composite Centre of Excellence which CTG moved in to. CTG continued to develop more High Lift Systems for aircrafts including the A350, 787 and Cseries including the development of TORQdiscs for the CSeries High Lift system.
Following the acquisition by UTC and the formation of UTC Aerospace System (Now Collins Aerospace), CTG started to focus solely on aerospace. CTG has won a number of large contracts including the A350 fuel pipes system, which with the help of UTAS, industrialised and automated the manufacturing process. CTG continued to evolve the shaft product developing it for the JSF Weapon Bay Door.
CTG is a leader in the design, development and manufacture of advanced composite products and systems for the aerospace industry. The company has established an international reputation for its innovation, quality and successful development of composite solutions across a wide business spectrum, including Composite Pipes and Isolators, Transmission Shafts and structural aircraft Tie Rods and Struts.
Our leadership team at CTG have a wealth of knowledge, passion and experience in aerospace and other relevant industries which helps to drive our success. They share CTG's vision to be the best through innovation, operational excellence and customer satisfaction.See our key people
