The agreement combines MIRA’s existing advanced engineering, research and testing offer with Southam-based DSD’s award-winning transmission expertise to cement MIRA’s position as an innovative, single source provider of vehicle engineering services

Commenting on the partnership MIRA CEO Dr George Gillespie said:

“Drive System Design is a robust business with sought after transmission and driveline expertise that earned the business the ‘Consultancy of the Year’ title at the recent British Engineering Excellence Awards.

“This collaboration enhances MIRA’s existing engineering capability and ensures that we are well placed to meet future challenges and opportunities – such as low carbon vehicle technologies – which will require specialist transmission solutions.”

MIRA’s collaboration with DSD is the latest of several agreements that have augmented its ‘whole vehicle engineering’ offer within the last two years. These include partnerships with: renowned Italian design house Torino Design, electric vehicle developer GEVCO Ltd and, most recently, noise vibration and harshness experts Brüel & Kjær.

Mark Findlay, managing director of DSD, added:

 “By focussing on what we know how to do well – designing innovative products that meet the demands of the automotive, renewable energy and motorsport industries – we have evolved into a respected niche business.

“Our experienced personnel and modest size means that we are nimble enough to adapt and exploit market opportunities and by collaborating with MIRA we become part of a wider vehicle engineering solution provider with a global footprint – creating a formidable team.”
