Lucas and McLaren Extend Technology Partnership for Further Three Years
Lucas and McLaren Group, the high-technology company encompassing McLaren F1, McLaren Automotive and McLaren Applied Technologies, have extended their technology partnership for a third time. The partnership has transformed our development and use of new technologies across our operations, and provides us with a wealth of marketing opportunities jointly with McLaren.
During the partnership we have built our own laboratory facilities and the new Lucas Technology Centre, and developed bespoke apps to advance the way we monitor construction projects and assist our operatives out on site.
We recently won the National Technology Award 2018 for manufacturing and construction technology, the first time these awards have covered our sector. The award is testament to our skill and precision in the use of groundbreaking new technologies.
The partnership with McLaren started when we successfully completed a series of fit out and finishing packages at the McLaren Production Centre. The centre was opened in 2011 by David Cameron, the then Prime Minister, and has since produced more than 15,000 McLaren Automotive road cars.
Lucas has completed a series of challenging projects across the McLaren campus since then, including the state-of-the-art Thought Leadership Centre which opened in 2015. We continue to work throughout the campus, ensuring that all of McLaren’s assets retain the best possible finish.
The partnership enables Lucas to show clients our best work in situ, with exclusive tours of the iconic McLaren campus.
Jonathan Neale, COO of McLaren Group said: “Lucas has proven time and time again their ability to work at the highest level. Their unparalleled attention to detail has enabled us to create and maintain our impressive corporate facility. We’re delighted to be working with them for a further three years.”
Danny Lucas, Executive Chairman and Managing Director of Lucas said: “Working closely with McLaren has been truly inspirational. It drives our exploitation of new technology right across our business, helping us provide the best possible services in fit out and finishing for our clients.”
