Licensing our Technology
Our preferred route to taking our technology into production is through licensing. Our typical licensee is a Tier 1 systems provider with the product development, customer access and vehicle integration skills as well as the global, low cost manufacturing capabilities to achieve high-volume take-up of the products.
Licensing can cover a range of options, from joint development programmes through to full global sales and manufacturing rights. In early stages of engagement, we will always require an intellectual property agreement protecting both parties.
Our engineers work closely with customers throughout their development programmes to ensure that our technology delivers optimum performance and efficiency in the chosen products and can meet their demanding quality and cost targets.
We have an extensive Intellectual Property (IP) base covering patents, know-how and hundreds of engineering man-years of development which we transfer to our licensees. We have invested over £140m in developing our technology.
