ASM Consulting participated at the 2016 Joint European Composites (JEC) Expo in France, supporting its client Alpex, a world-leader in composite tooling manufacturing. During the Expo the Alpex Stand received a large number of visitors, particularly from Asia, as well as visitors from France, testifying to ASMs success in promoting Alpex to the French aerospace industry.
ASM was pleased to support our client Alpex at the recent European Composites Expo in Stuttgart. This key event in the european composites calendar is aimed more at manufacturing and production processes than products and so was an ideal venu for Alpex to exhibit its composite manufacturing technology and to highlight its prototype RTM composite RTM manufacturing process which does not use silicon seals. While the footfall at the Expo was relatively restrained the Alpex Stand welcomed a continuous stream of customers and visitors, demonstrating the reputation of this small but dynamic Austrian SME.
David Cook has been invited to participate as a member of the jury for this year’s prestigious USAIRE Student’s Award. This award, offered by the Paris-based USAIRE organisation, is offered to students from around the world who submit papers considering subjects of strategic importance to the aerospace industry. This year’s subject is ‘The environmental question in the economic model of the aerospace and defense industries’. Of the 33 papers already submitted a short list of 16 will be presented to a jury of aerospace professionals for final deliberation. The winners will receive their prizes from Tom Enders, President of Airbus Group, during the USAIRE Thanksgiving Dinner to be held in Paris on 27th November 2015.
While the ASM Consulting company was officially incorporated on the 16th December 2005 David Cook undertook his first consultancy assignment in July of the same year. We can therefore celebrate the fact that David has now been working as a consultant for over 10 years!
