We are delighted to announce that Ian Howe will be joining the team at Progressive Advanced Materials taking the role of Senior Quality Engineer. Ian brings his widely acknowledged capabilities and wealth of experience, having worked in F1 for the past 15+ years.

Progressive Advanced Materials are already recognised as an industry leading supplier to F1, with an unparalleled commitment to quality. This appointment will enable us to improve product and process quality whilst creating a clear communication line for our customers, specifically relating to quality.

I recognised the opportunity to join this already established business which has recently invested heavily, enabling them to offer a full turnkey solution for composites component manufacture. Giving them direction on the next part of the journey, is thrilling and very much in line with my own ambitions and quality expectations. Supporting the business in taking these capabilities forward in the world of Motorsport, Automotive and Aerospace whilst looking at future opportunities is an exciting prospect.
