Custom Composite Manufacturing

Experts in Carbon Fibre Manufacturing

From our 45,000 Square foot facility in Rotorua, we manufacture carbon fibre and composite components for clients across the globe. 

With temperature-controlled preparation rooms, custom-built curing ovens, 3D printing lab, CNC machining centre and an extensive finishing facility, there's not a lot we can't do.

Couple this with a dedicated team of 60 who bring multiple hundreds of years combined experience, and you'll get a sense of the scale and capability Kilwell can offer.

Our Manufacturing Process

Our process is collaborative. We believe that being a part of our client's success means being transparent and leveraging each other's collective strengths. Here's how we'd like to work with you.
Scope First we work with you to understand and define the scope of what you need to achieve.
Solution Finding Working to your drawings, our composite experts work on layups and the right production process.
Short-Run & QC We produce a short-run for testing and quality control.
Production Once we've signed off the short-run together, we roll into full scale production.

"We were running 3 shifts, 24 hours a day, 5 days a week"
