We would like to thank you once again for the contribution that you have made towards our success in the 2018 Formula One season, allowing us to win the fifth World Championship title in a row.
This year’s Championship has been both challenging and exciting at the same time and we could not have achieved these results with out your hard work, dedication and support.
It quickly became apparent that the team at HV Wooding were capable of really adding to the performance of the components we were developing.
They were not content with just providing what was initially required, they wanted to optimise both price and performance
We are very pleased with the outcome of this new assembly, and the quality of the item you have delivered is excellent. It would seem the effort put into modelling it has really paid off. What I was hoping to achieve was a reduction in component count, weight and cost and we have achieved all of these. Consolidation of 5 main parts and their related fasteners into this one item. Weight reduction from 13kg down to 6kg! The cost reduction is also significant!

A Global manufacturer of “Hybrid Drivetrain” for Motorsport and Transportation applications. A key market for flywheel energy storage technology is the public transport sector. This technology can save fuel and reduce green house gas emissions by up to 30% in a city bus for example.
Strategic outsourcing partner
A leading international manufacturer of electrical accessories were producing all components in house. In order to focus on core activities and increase profitability, they needed a strategic outsourcing partner that they could trust. After a detailed evaluation, they decided to outsource all presswork components to HV Wooding.
