Prodrive to Double Workforce at Milton Keynes Composites Plant

September 17 2012

Technology consultancy and precision-manufacturing specialist Prodrive is nearly doubling the size of the workforce at its composites plant in Milton Keynes. The company wants to make it one of Europe’s largest composites specialists with close to 200 employed in its manufacturing operations.

The recruitment drive follows the award of significant new business from the automotive, aerospace and defence sectors. These include the supply of cosmetic and large structural components for a new European supercar and highly specialist applications such as components for a space telescope. Prodrive has already increased the factory’s floor area to more than 32,000 sq ft (3,000 m2) after winning contracts for high quality trim components from three premium vehicle manufacturers and is already planning a further phase of expansion.
