TISICS has a unique European facility developing and manufacturing ceramic fibre and reinforced titanium and aluminium parts. The strength and stiffness improvements mean lighter, more efficient components and systems in space, aerospace, defence and energy. Its technology could be used to create 30% to 70% lighter aircraft parts, which would burn less fuel and create fewer emissions.

We have had great support from the team in Surrey, not just the mentors but the whole team. They have provided great guidance. The investment events, whether we have made pitches, exhibited or just listened have really helped focus our thoughts on the next stage of investment."
"We aim to build Europe's first industrial plant and exploit this technology to establish a world leading capability initially in space then aerospace and defence but ultimately to high volume markets in the energy sector and automotive industry.Stephen Kyle-Henney, Managing Director, TISICS Limited
