Prodrive has moved into its new headquarters in Banbury, UK. The facility measures 110,000ft² and will be home to both the motorsport business, which runs the Aston Martin Racing team as well as the Mini and VW Golf in rallying, and its Advanced Technology division.
In the new facility, race and rally cars will be built alongside advanced active aero systems for super cars, center console modules for luxury cars, and the latest control systems for electric vehicles.
“This is the beginning of a new era for the company. For the first time all our motorsport, advanced technology and manufacturing operations will be under one roof in a modern purpose-built facility. This will enable us to operate far more efficiently and to increase the collaboration and technology transfer between our businesses,” commented David Richards, Prodrive chairman.
“Banbury is very much Prodrive’s home. Our former site became a landmark for motorists travelling between London and Birmingham on the M40 motorway and I am sure that our new headquarters will continue this tradition.”
