At Prodrive we combine our pace and agility with free thinking to redefine the possible.

We have been defying convention for decades.  Prodrive Advanced Technology is the Prodrive division that combines our motorsport ethos with free-thinking to deliver complex engineering designs and specialist manufacturing programmes to the automotive, aerospace, marine, defence and more recently, clean energy sectors.

Prodrive Advanced Technology is a combined engineering consultancy and manufacturing business.  Our engineering consultancy helps our clients take on new challenges. We bring together agile, multi-disciplined teams and work from first principles upwards, to deliver projects quickly. From challenging electro-mechanical systems to electrification and light-weighting programmes. Through our onsite manufacturing & assembly facility we’re able to produce complex parts and deliver complete systems.

In charge of our own destiny, we have the freedom to set our own direction, the freedom to decide where our pace, agility, breadth of capability, creativity and passion for innovation can be optimally deployed to make the biggest impact next.

Our current portfolio includes work on military suspension systems, innovative aircraft seating systems, a dedicated electric 18 tonne truck and the design and delivery of a new hypercar’s hydraulic control system.  The range and diversity of our programmes is testament to our award-winning engineers who thrive on delivering innovative and robust solutions to our clients’ toughest challenges.

The unprecedented level of change the world faces excites us. Change creates opportunities so now is the time for us to be even more bold. As our new Commercial Director you will drive our growth and help set direction for the next generation of game-changing products, services and programmes.
