The company’s ability to deliver outstanding solutions extremely quickly has put its products in oil rigs, aircraft, yachts, satellites and, via its own global motorsport operations, many of the most successful competition cars ever created.


Process breakthrough integrates moulded plastic features and inserts with high quality carbon composite components
17 January, 2014
A new process from Prodrive will make carbon composite components easier to incorporate into premium and luxury vehicle interiors. Features normally added in a separate operation, such as clips and inserts for threaded fasteners, can now be moulded directly onto the back of high quality composite panels, producing a more cost-effective part than a conventional bonded assembly, and one with greater mechanical strength. Already producing parts for the first two production applications, both premium automotive interiors, the process removes a major barrier to the wider use of composites.
