Vehicle design expands in UK

International Automotive Design is recruiting 50 product designers and engineers as it expands its research and design facilities at Coventry. IAD – part of the Mayflower engineering group since 1993 – will not confirm if the expansion is due to new orders.

Managing director Mike Bryant says: “We are bound by confidentiality and can never talk about projects that are under way – but obviously we would not be expanding our permanent

workforce unless the future had been secured.”

IAD’s expansion is seen as confirmation that although the UK may not lead the world in building cars, it is a growing centre for consultancy in vehicle design.
