We are the Development Center for
Maintenance of Composites

We maintain. We research. We innovate.

  Always looking for smart partnerships

DCMC is made possible by:

At the Development Center for Maintenance of Composites (DCMC), we combine and share knowledge & expertise on the repair and maintenance of composites and hybrid structures.

At DCMC we have a mission.

We are determined to set up the largest, most important center for composites maintenance and repair in Europe. 

This is how…

Attract new players

DCMC combines innovative SMEs with the knowledge of future OEMs. One of our goals is to attract new players to the cluster to further develop our globally distinctive competitive position.

Carry out fundamental research and industrial development

Where other clusters focus on the development of composite material, we focus on its maintenance – with inspection and repair techniques being developed simultaneously.

Become an international hub for composites inspection, repair and maintenance

West Brabant, and Woensdrecht in particular, will form the heart of composite maintenance. DCMC will have the first mover advantage, with a strong economic effect for the region.

Maintenance Solutions
Inspection & Repair

Being a leader at global level requires players who can make innovation happen. We are uniting these players in DCMC. By continuously developing innovative projects in the field of inspection and repair of composite material, DCMC is the leading cluster in the world for composite repairs.
