Ad-Vance Engineering has been selected as a global supplier for a leading Tier 1 automotive component manufacturer headquartered in Canada.
The Northern Ireland-based company has delivered moulds, jigs and fixtures to the component manufacturer’s UK subsidiary for a number of years.
The selection highlights the company’s ability to meet the demands of top automotive brands in tool mould manufacturing expertise and post moulding machining operations.
Company MD Roger Vance said: “This is a significant endorsement for the skill sets and extensive R&D work undertaken by the Ad-Vance Engineering team, all of which is underpinned by our ‘Precision Through Everything’ standard.
“Adding value to the manufacturing process in this way has set us apart from the competition and has helped us achieve Global Status with this high-profile international manufacturer.”
The news follows a £1m investment in the facilities at Ad-Vance, which includes the recruitment of a number of graduates and apprentices with expertise in engineering design.
Achieving global supplier status rounded off a successful year for Ad-Vance, which is positioned for further growth over 2020.
