Since a management buyout in 2005 TISICS has developed lightweight high performance metal matrix composites (MMC) reinforced with its proprietary ceramic fibre. TISICS is the only European supplier of ceramic fibre MMC, recognised by ESA as providing independent access to these MMCs in Europe.

TISICS owns the fibre to composite design and manufacturing technology and is working with Airbus Defence and Space, TAS UK, SSTL, Reaction Engines and ESA. TISICS is focusing on spacecraft propellant tanks as customers seek a UK supply chain.

TISICS owns technology developed since the late 1980s and is exploiting patented and proprietary technology to develop markets in the UK and Europe. TISICS is developing its space manufacturing capability and seeking investment to enable serial production. Once the space manufacturing business is robust TISICS will use this as a platform to grow a larger civil aerospace capability in the UK.

Growth will improve the economics for all sectors which will increase our range of products and export opportunities. TISICS has 18 staff and remains a private management team

owned SME.

TISICS turned over £820k in FY2015/16 and forecasts £1.2M in FY2016/17 with a secure £2.4M 3 year order book. We are seeking commercial export sales and investment to enable growth of a UK manufacturing capability.
