Composite Prime was established in 2014 by Domenic Harrison and Charles Taylor.

The Taylor family has been established in the timber industry for more than 60 years, with Charles being a third generation timber merchant. Both highly experienced in their respective fields, Domenic and Charles have created the perfect partnership with Composite Prime’s unique formula of wood-plastic decking and cladding, as well as a pioneering range of innovative flooring, cleaning products and accessories.
