MIRA partners with Drive System Design for transmission projects28 March 2011

MIRA and Drive System Design have cocluded a deal that will see the two transport engineering organisations working together on transmission, driveline and gearbox projects.

This is the latest of several agreements signed by MIRA in the last two years – including Italian design house Torino Design, electric vehicle developer GEVCO and, most recently, noise vibration firm Brüel & Kjær – aimed at augmenting its whole vehicle engineering offer credentials.

Commenting on the partnership MIRA CEO Dr George Gillespie says: "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."

And he adds: "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.

Mark Findlay (pictured), managing director of DSD, adds: "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. By collaborating with MIRA, we become part of a wider vehicle engineering solution provider with a global footprint."
