Automotive design and engineering consultancy reveals plans for new Warwick HQ

Fast-growing UK-based automotive design and engineering consultancy Contechs has unveiled plans to build new design offices and create more than 125 new jobs as its global business booms.

Contechs plans to build a new two-storey design office next to Grand Union House – the company’s global headquarters in Budbrooke Road, Warwick. It is also recruiting more than 125 designers and design engineers, which will bring its headcount to almost 1,000.

The new investment will further enhance the services Contechs provides to its OEM clients worldwide, which include some of the major prestige automotive manufacturers.

The new building, next to the Grand Union Canal, will provide almost 2,800 sq. ft. of office space, with meeting rooms and associated facilities.

Contechs group managing director Peter Jarvis said the investment in premises and people would enhance the company’s services to its growing global portfolio of vehicle makers.

“This has been a period of impressive growth for Contechs across the world, which has allowed us once again to increase our expanding highly-skilled workforce and invest in our site in Warwick. This investment will further strengthen our market leading position in this competitive sector,” he said
