Composite Club

FBC Manby Bowdler

With our roots firmly in Wolverhampton, where we’ve been providing legal advice to manufacturers of the city and surrounding area for nearly 200 years, we’re proud to be a sponsor of the BLOODHOUND SSC record attempt. Indeed we’re pleased we’ve been able to continue Wolverhampton’s proud history of being associated with land speed records, for it was on March 29th 1927 that the Sunbeam ‘Slug’, manufactured in the city was the first car to break the 200mph barrier


Back in 1974, when we founded Mantracourt, our mission was clear: to lead the field in the application of microelectronics across all sectors of industrial measurement. Over the past four decades Mantracourt, still proudly based in the Southwest of England, has fulfilled that goal. Today our mission remains the same: we continue to provide cutting-edge measurement technology to scores of OEM sensor manufacturers and our international distribution network now spans over 30 countries.
