WHO WE ARE
Established in 1968, Futura Composites was one of the first composite manufacturers in the Netherlands specialized in designing, engineering and manufacturing of composite industrial components. Since then, Futura Composites team has grown to over 70 employees, varying from talented young designers to multi-skilled experienced craftsmen with the most diverse backgrounds.
We are experts in composite materials. As the name indicates, a “composite” is a combination of two or more different materials to create a superior and unique material with unparalleled properties. This principle is nothing new. It can be traced all the way back to the ancient Egypt, where the most widespread building material was a mix of mud and straw: two basic materials that, if combined, reinforced each other, acquiring improved properties.
Composite solutions are often superior to traditional materials. Using advanced composite design, premium materials, diverse bonding techniques and state-of-the-art production methods, we can incorporate virtually any properties into a composite product.
We invite you to watch our recently released promotional film to have a closer look at Futura Composites!
Since 2000, Futura Composites has been part of the Tesla Group, which comprises Tesla Engineering Ltd. (Sussex, UK), Futura Composites B.V. (Heerhugowaard, Netherlands), and Everson Tesla Inc. (PA, USA). With this union, we keep expanding our capacity and presence in the most diverse markets.

The HYPMED project (http://www.hypmed.eu)
Futura is proud to anounce its participation in the HYPMED project. This project focuses on the development of a digital hybrid breast PET/MRI system for enhanced diagnosis of breast cancer.
The project`s aim is to develop a radiofrequency coil that can be connected to any regular clinical MR scanner and transform the device into a high-resolution PET/MRI hybrid system, which can be used to identify even the smallest breast cancer foci and better characterize the cancer as well as its response to therapy. Patients will also benefit as the radiation dose of the new technology will, in contrast to other PET-MRI examinations, be comparable to a regular digital mammogram.
NASA's Orion Solar Array Wing Deployment Test is a Success!
