Our long-standing relationship with Bentley Motor cars has created numerous opportunities. One prestigious project gave us the challenge of assisting in the design and development for the upgraded Mulsanne range in 2017. This required a total ‘facelift’ of the Bright-ware, involving more parts, designs and high levels of stylisation. It was made more challenging as it was required across several models. All-in-all, this was a complex project working both directly with Bentley as well as collaborating with other suppliers to a rigid timeline.
Initially focussing on the expertise within our Technical CAD/CAM team we were able to provide designs to the finished article. To progress further required us working closely with Bentley’s Mulliner teams, Prototyping all new developments to the highest standards and quality expected by Bentley.
As key suppliers we took ownership of the full manufacturing function, project-managed other sub-contractors, the production process, tooling, training and relevant accreditations. In-line with these responsibilities we identified the need to create a new Polishing shop that required significant investment and now produces exceptionally high-spec work.
