A five minute chat with DFS Composites

June 22nd 2021

We sat down with Feras Yosef from DFS composites who told us a little bit about their company, what they are up to and why they chose to be based at our centre!


How did you start your company?

I saw a gap in the market for a niche blades tooling solutions provider, and we decided to address this gap. I quit my full-time job and incorporated DFS back in 2016.

What are you working on at the moment?

We are commissioning new productions lines to produce one of the largest wind turbine blades in North America. We are also developing radical and innovative solutions to produce large over 110m wind turbine blades.

What do you like about OVIC?

OVIC has been our incubation centre, facilitating our growth and networking. It gave us a very stable homebase with the ability to scale up and down when and where needed. It has also enabled us access to multiple grants as well as to key business support advisory.

What projects/ambitions do you have for the future of your company?

Establish a UK base prototype facility to takeout ideas and projects to the next level.
