DriveRight invests in Warwickshire

An international supplier of automotive, wheel and tyre data is joining the likes of Aston Martin, Bentley and GKN by investing in Nuneaton.

DriveRight, founded 15 years ago, has established its UK R&D team and wheel and caliper consultancy within a new office at MIRA Technology Park.

The company has been an integral part of the global automotive industry since 2001 and works alongside some of the world’s leading wheel and tyre manufacturers.

Having recently announced plans to expand further, the move to MIRA Technology Park (now part of the HORIBA MIRA group) is the first step in its expansion plan.

Speaking on the move, Richard Bailey, CEO, said: “We’re very pleased to establish our R&D and wheel and caliper consultancy services at MIRA Technology Park.

“We have enjoyed successful business relationships with many of the leading manufacturers, not only within the wheel and tyre industry, but also major vehicle manufacturers – many of which also enjoy close links with HORIBA MIRA; something we consider very beneficial in our move to the Technology Park.

“We see MIRA Technology Park becoming the focal point for the automotive industry, and we hope the ability to collaborate with our neighbours also based on the Technology Park far more easily than before will open doors for all parties.”

Since 2010, the park has welcomed a number of globally-recognised businesses to the site, including Aston Martin, Bentley, GKN, Bosch, Continental and Goodyear, amongst others.
