Jonathan Lee Design Services trebles in size as automotive sector booms
The Wrawickshire-based company, which specialises in digital design and modelling to support automotive and engineering innovation, has trebled in size over the past six months, prompting the company to take additional space at its Hatton-base.
The bespoke digital design business was established by engineering and manufacturing recruitment specialist Jonathan Lee Recruitment to provide dedicated digital design and prototyping solutions to clients from the automotive and engineering sectors. The first initiative of its kind in the design recruitment sector, the business has gone from strength to strength as the demand for a specialist service that can deliver high level digital models as well as low volume prototypes has grown.
Nick Jones, associate director at Jonathan Lee Design Services, commented, “To the best of our knowledge, we now have the biggest dedicated ALIAS modelling team outside of the UK OEMs. For many manufacturers, using specialist design services like ours to support innovation is simply more cost-effective than trying to achieve the same goals in-house.
“By using our teams to either complement their own design programmes or to undertake fully project managed assignments, our clients are able to increase their speed to market, avoid high initial outlays for hardware and software and benefit from our in-depth design knowledge, whilst retaining full flexibility.
“Skilled designers with the necessary creative flair and modelling experience are hard to come by. Sourcing this kind of talent can be a time-consuming and lengthy process. Our clients therefore really value the opportunity we give them to draw on the expertise of our specialist teams, as and when the need arises.”
