John Newton 1946-2014

Thursday, June 12th, 2014

John NewtonIt is with great sadness that we have to announce that John passed away in late May and his funeral was held on 5th June in the Priory Church at Cartmel, Cumbria.

In his lifetime John has made a huge contribution to the composite design methodology in the access chamber market and he developed the first cover and frame for the petrol forecourt industry as far back as 1983.

His enthusiasm, commitment and enormous knowledge have been appreciated by all of us who were lucky enough to come into contact with him. He was also a very keen fisherman and always had a tale to tell.

As one of the shareholders, he started Structural Science Composites Ltd back in 2005 and he has led the development of SSC range of composite covers since then. During 2013 he left the company as a director to concentrate on new methods, but remained as a shareholder.
