AN ILKESTON engineering firm has beat the economic climate, increasing its staff by 10 per cent in the last six months.

Atlas Composites has become one of just four firms in the UK to earn the coveted ‘AS9100 Rev C’ accreditation for the aerospace, space and defence sectors.

It now employs 60 people in the Quarry Hill Industrial Estate.

Managing director Shaun Moloney said: “We’ve enjoyed substantial growth over the last year or so, which has led to us adding to our team so we are really on a high having also won this accreditation.”
