ABOUT US

Dartford Composites Ltd is a specialist manufacturer of high quality GRP and GRP(ph) fire retardant and specialist components for the rail industry sector.

Established over 30 years, during this time we have built an understanding of the rail & tram industry and a reputation of working with the customer to respond in a timely and cost effective manner.

We believe that key to working successfully in the rail industry is understanding our customers’ needs and providing not just a product but a “complete service”.

We work closely with our customers from the design conception stage through the full product development cycle to production of the finished product to enable them to leverage our expertise and experience in both GRP and the rail industry sector.

We are ISO9001(2015) accredited by a UKAS approved accreditor and are also approved applicators of specialist paint products for Dupont, Mankiewicz and most globally recognised paint suppliers.
