Vehicle testing in South East
Members with this Capability
A world-leading motorsport and advanced technology group. Combining motorsport culture with robust engineering processes and quality procedures we accelerate ideas from proof of concept and prototype stages through to production under one roof far quicker than our clients could ever do themselves.
You will find us working on ground-breaking projects for leading vehicle manufacturers including the creation of an electric hybrid Transit van for Ford; electrically-powered fuelling systems for commercial jet engines; the McLaren P1’s active aero system; and luxury interior systems for Range Rover or Volvo.
We can assist in and have technical specialisms in the following:
- Electric and hybrid vehicles
- Vehicle platform development
- Electro-hydraulic and electro-mechanical actuation systems
- CAE including Multi-Body Simulation, structural and thermal FEA, thermal flow, NVH
- Systems integration
- HV and power electronics design and manufacture
Our comprehensive manufacturing capability can carry out low volume system, module, or full vehicle build.
We design and manufacture advanced lightweight composites for a wide range of applications, creating beautiful visual carbon trim and lightweight bodywork for many leading vehicle manufacturers; first class cabins for Boeing; components for helicopters, drones and even satellites; and are currently supplying the Royal Navy. We manage the whole process from component design, tooling, volume manufacture to finishing.
