    Neil Cushing,
    Managing Director RLE UK

There are fewer UK brands today than there were 30 years ago. However, the global demand for more models and variants of these remaining premium brands, has created an even greater need for outside specialist engineering and design support services. This fast changing industry has the need to move forward and find innovative solutions to meet this demand. To that end RLE has responded to this challenge and is now recognised by the OEMs as having a very robust offering. We are proud to say this is due to the depth of experience within the team borne out of our Automotive Heritage here in the UK.

We can also lay claim to being a proud leader in the Automotive Consultancy business in the UK, supporting our clients in their global reach into the markets within China, India and South America. RLE’s core competencies are in Body Structures and Closures, Interior and Exterior Trim, Glazing, Seals – everything associated with the development of the fundamental vehicle architecture from concept to product launch. Within this environment, our skill-sets enable us to integrate Powertrain, Chassis and Electrical systems as required to generate innovative and optimised engineering solutions that meet our customers’ Quality, Cost and Time objectives.

We are able to act as a stand-alone turnkey development resource, or as fully integrated support to customer teams, with Technical Specialists, Designers, Engineers, Project Managers and Release Administrators delivering projects across the full spectrum from component to full vehicle.
