MIRA and Creative Data set to collaborate on vehicle projects

MIRA and Creative Data have signed a memorandum of understanding that will see the two engineering businesses collaborate on future vehicle projects for original equipment manufacturers and tier 1 suppliers with operations in Germany.

The alliance extends MIRA’s geographic reach in Continental Europe and expands Hürth-based Creative Data’s offer to its customers — enabling it to provide product and component testing, as well as full-service engineering consultancy.

Commenting on the partnership, MIRA chief executive officer Dr George Gillespie said: ‘Creative Data is a good strategic fit for our business. Not only does it have a strong reputation among its customers and share our commitment to technical excellence but it also enables us to establish a foothold in the German automotive market — which saw domestic car production rise 12 per cent [to 5.5 million units] last year.’
