DriveRight takes up residency at MIRA

DriveRight, a leading independent supplier of international automotive, wheel and tyre data, has taken up residency at MIRA Technology Park and UK Enterprise Zone, near Hinckley.

DriveRight has established its UK research and development (R&D) team, and wheel and caliper consultancy within a secure and newly-finished building within the Technology Park.

DriveRight works alongside some of the leading manufacturers of wheels and tyres on an international level. The company recently announced plans to expand further, and the move to MIRA Technology Park (now part of the HORIBA MIRA group) is the first step in its expansion plan.

Richard Bailey, CEO at DriveRight, said, ‘We’re very pleased to establish our R&D and wheel and caliper consultancy services at MIRA Technology Park. We have enjoyed successful business relationships with many of the leading manufacturers, not only within the wheel and tyre industry, but also major vehicle manufacturers – many of which also enjoy close links with HORIBA MIRA; something we consider very beneficial in our move to the Technology Park.

‘We see MIRA Technology Park becoming the focal point for the automotive industry, and we hope the ability to collaborate with our neighbours also based on the Technology Park far more easily than before will open doors for all parties.’

Since 2010, MIRA Technology Park has welcomed a number of globally-recognised businesses to the site, including Aston Martin, Bentley, GKN, Bosch, Continental and Goodyear, amongst others.
