MGI Engineering focuses on delivering technology and engineering services using our people’s experience to deliver customised solutions to highly specialised low volume and wider mainstream projects.

We work closely as a team with our customers introducing innovative engineering solutions that can be applied in the rigorously certified world of aerospace and beyond in the automotive sector.

Our team combine vast experience with industry knowledge to engineer first in class, highly customised solutions to your product challenges.

We are currently providing design solutions in both mainstream aviation on aircraft such as A320 NEO, and the emerging sector of electric aviation including Electric Vertical Take off and Landing (eVTOL) vehicles.

We adopt a client-first philosophy throughout all of our engineering projects and have access to a network of additional specialists and international partners.

As the issue of climate change becomes an increasingly pressing force, the calls for innovative solutions to decarbonise the transport sector are growing louder. 

Aerospace & Aviation

We use our teams expertise, pace and agility to develop innovative engineering solutions that can be applied in the rigorously certified world of aerospace. Our Formula 1 approach in regards to the use of new materials and techniques, specifically the innovative use of lightweight composite structures, our simulation capabilities in aerodynamics and stress analysis, mechanical engineering and specialised manufacturing is an integral part in all of our aerospace projects. As well as our mainstream aerospace projects we are unique in having exceptional experience in the emerging market of electric aviation and eVTOL technology. We are proud to be AS9100D certified.

Motorsport

Our team combine their motorsport knowledge and expertise to uniquely position us as one of the few organisations outside F1 to have launched a team from scratch (Lotus F1 Team 2009). We can handle projects from lightweight part design, through to whole car projects as well as specialist aerodynamic and vehicle dynamic programs. Our CEO, Mike Gascoyne's unique background and experience in F1 and top end motorsport make us unrivalled as a motorsport consultancy steeped in high-end engineering and problem solving capabilities.

Automotive & Transport

Our people bring many years of insight and knowledge of working in the niche motorsport and lightweight sports car sector. We can efficiently apply our skillsets to the mainstream automotive sector; particularly the cost-effective use of lightweight composite solutions, simulation and high density power train design and packaging. We have extensive experience in the development of top end hyper car and luxury sports car development. We also specialise in bringing new composite based lightweight solutions in to more traditional commercial transport sectors such as bus, truck and train design.

Marine

Our CEO has competed in solo and two-handed offshore races including the Transat Jacques Varbe 2013, and skippered a Class 40 racing yacht to podium finishes in the RORC Fastnet and RORC Transatlantic races in 2015. This knowledge and interest in the sector combined with our motivation to use F1 technology and project management to mainstream industries allows us to deliver cutting-edge technology to the marine environment. The application of lightweight design combined with reliability and safety applied in F1 is equally important in the marine sector, both in the leisure and competitive environments.

Design House

We utilise cutting-edge computer aided engineering (CAE) software including Siemens NX and SolidWorks design packages, Siemens TeamCenter PLM software and Altair Hyperworks solutions. Our design staff can deliver unrivalled expertise, achieving a competitive edge, in a cost-effective model, for our clients.
