Case Study: Gurit Automotive Design Support

Gurit is a world leading developer and manufacturer of advanced composite materials, engineering and technical solutions to the wind energy, transportation, tooling, marine and engineered structures markets.

Due to the growing success of Gurit’s carbon fibre based Class A composite body panels for the automotive industry, Gurit have found themselves needing to increase their design capacity.  With its long term involvement in composite design, starting in Formula, Intrinsys were asked to help support the Gurit engineering team.  With short notice, Intrinsys were able to replicate the working practices of the Gurit engineering team and provide support both at Gurit and on-site at the client facility.

“Intrinsys is proving to be an excellent resource and from our point of view we are very pleased with the work and commitment.”  Ian Cowley, Programme Manager
