Intensified focus on engineering [IDEX19D2]

18 February 2019

Timoney (Stand 05-A47) is placing an increased focus on its engineering consultancy business unit and expects its revenues in this area to more than double over the next three years, the company has announced at IDEX.

Recognising an increasing demand, Timoney is offering standalone engineering services and consultancy to customers requiring specialist skill sets for through-life support, maintenance, repair and overhaul, and vehicle upgrade programmes, as well as existing customers engaged in new vehicle development.

Based in County Meath, Ireland, Timoney has a long record of supporting wheeled vehicle manufacturers with new vehicle developments through the provision of specialist engineering and design services, predominantly for automotive systems, dynamic performance, mobility and drivetrain solutions.

“It has become increasingly apparent that our customers recognise that our automotive engineering skills are as relevant to programmes involving inservice vehicles and upgrades as they are during the new vehicle development cycle,” said CEO Shane O’Neill. “Providing consultancy services in this way does represent a change in mindset for us as a business, but it is clear that our involvement in so many pioneering programmes and our 50 years’ experience developing new vehicles puts us in a unique position to be able to address this market.

“We continue to participate in new vehicle development programmes, but we are even approaching these differently from a commercial perspective based on the needs of our customers.”

Timoney’s automotive engineering and design offering encompasses driveline, suspension, powerpack, chassis and structures, as well as other automotive systems.

In addition to 3D solid modelling and CAD design, the company can provide dynamic analysis and finite element analysis.
