Aston Martin launches consultancy arm

Aston Martin has launched a consultancy arm to offer collaboration and support on design, engineering and manufacturing projects, the car company has announced.

The department will operate out of the company’s Gaydon headquarters and MD Bradley Yorke-Biggs, who has been part of Aston Martin’s senior management for 14 years, will head it up.

He said the new division would allow Aston Martin to “extend the reach of the business to include the provision of services across different sectors - both automotive and beyond”.

"We have an incredibly talented and experienced team within Aston Martin and we look forward to expanding our horizons as we work with new clients on interesting new projects,” he continued.

The Midlands manufacturer has a long history of collaboration, having worked with architects Foster & Partners on the next generation of London buses, as well as Quintessence Yachts on a range of powerboats.

Aston Martin chief executive Andy Palmer said the idea came about as the company is “often asked to collaborate on projects with other companies”.

"My belief is that we can expand the provision of our expertise and experience even further. The formation of Aston Martin Consulting means that we can offer a more structured approach to these projects,” he continued.
