Read about the Founder of Darwin Composites - Tom LeeBehind the Name


Tom Lee established Darwin Composites after relocating to Shrewsbury with his family.  Hence the chosen name!  Tom planned to bring together his engineering skills to produce composite products.  He wanted to use his experience and knack for science to drive forward customers’ ideas and create a product solution.  To establish not only the best ratio of material to form but to enhance the usability and lifetime of a product. 

Darwin Composites has since dealt with a range of customers from large corporations to small race teams in a variety of sectors, there really is no job too big or too small.  All projects receive the same attention to detail and care.  Tom is thorough and considers a concept in detail so that no opportunity is missed.  His products are the best that they can be.

Tom developed his engineering skills working within various industries.  He was Number One Mechanic running and maintaining two sports prototypes in the Euro Speed Series and OSS.  He was contracted to build three sports prototypes and fabricate custom parts using composite and metal working skills.  He has also maintained a sports prototype in both the Far East and European race series, which included bespoke modifications to optimise performance. 

Along with Tom’s dedication to engineering and motorsport, he has been a sports rock climber and built climbing walls, constructed catamaran boats and managed a CNC machine shop.  His passion for science and form knows no bounds. 

All in all, Tom has developed a wide array of skills that can now be demonstrated through Darwin Composites:

  • He builds robust relationships with both customers and suppliers.
  • He has a strong reputation for delivering – his steely determination ensures that deadlines are met.
  • He provides input and is in it for the duration.
  • He works alongside his customers to achieve the best result.
