CMT Relaunches as Alvant

Alvant, formerly Composite Metal Technology (CMT), reports a steep rise in demand for its aluminium matrix composite (AMC) products in the past year. Having recently won a series of new contracts in the aerospace, defence and automotive industries, the UK company has re-branded as Alvant.

Alvant has been selected to help develop the latest generation aircraft landing gear by a major technology company and is working on projects with Rolls Royce, Ford and GE Aviation, among others. More contracts are expected to be announced shortly.

The company manufactures AMCs using a proprietary advanced liquid pressure forming (ALPF) process.

“Commercial readiness of Alvant’s products comes at a time of increasing demand for strong, yet lightweight, components in transport and defence, industrial processes and high-end consumer products,” explains John Bonas, Managing Director of Alvant. “AMCs provide the strength and stiffness of steel at less than half the weight. They are also offer good damage tolerance and a higher thermal operating range. We are able to help design engineers from a range of industries find ways to increase their products’ capabilities and performance while meeting ambitious goals for fuel efficiency and sustainability.”

Alvant has a staff of 14 people including a management team that was revitalised in 2017 through a combination of internal promotions and external appointments. The company operates from industrial premises on the Prisma Business Park in Basingstoke, Hampshire, where it has three factory units.
