Welcome to Pentaxia
Pentaxia is ambitious, adventurous, creative and innovative. From composite tooling to component manufacturing and surface coating, Pentaxia can deliver a complete composite solution under one roof.
The company is based in a modern 70,000sq ft facility, centrally located in Derby, in the UK.
We are proud to work with many successful bluechip companies across a wide range of sectors including: aerospace; defence; luxury automotive; medical; motorsport and rail. We are also happy to work on smaller bespoke, niche and special projects.
With a strong reputation in the market for predictable, on-time quality manufacturing and with AS9100 Rev D and ISO9001 accreditation, we are often the first choice for our high profile clients.
We consider ourselves an “end to end” solution provider, undertaking all aspects of supply from tooling design, manufacturing and component production, right through to surface finishing.
Continuous investment in our plant and equipment ensures we maintain our competitive advantage. A plant and machinery duplication policy demonstrates our commitment to minimising any possible delays should we experience any service downtime.
A high growth advanced composites supplier, our founding DNA lies in 5-axis machining, demonstrated with a generous capacity of four 5-axis machines capable of a variety of functions including pattern making, composite machining, trimming etc.
With four high specification autoclaves and three composite presses we have a wealth of capability and expertise to hand when it comes to composite manufacturing. Our composite department floorplan enables laminating rooms to be dedicated to specific customer requirements.
Our largest laminating room was completed specifically for high volume automotive OEM composite supply but can be utilised exclusively for any volume supply projects. We also have a confidential laminating room for any sensitive composite projects.
For an impressive finishing touch, our in-house paint facility can take composite components to be surface prepared and lacquered to demanding luxury OEM quality standards.
But what are we most proud of within the business? Our people – we have a fantastic, highly talented team. A vast proportion of our management and composite team have well over 10+ years’ experience in composites, with many having degree level qualifications right up to MSc qualification. From laminators, trimmers and project engineers to senior management, each individual has undisputed experience in their respective fields.
Always looking to the future, Pentaxia has recognised that for composites to expand into new higher volume markets, there will be a need across the sector to reduce costs and offset the benefit of outsourcing out of the UK.
We have heavily invested in our Research and Development division with a focus on next generation industrial automation. Additional equipment and a growing team are leading the way forward as we look for new ways to automate processes and improve performance.
