Hofer Powertrain


Contract Administrator, Principal Designer


Wakemans were employed as Contract Administrator and Principal Designer on this £1 million fit out of a new production facility and offices for Hofer Powertrain one of the world’s leading providers of hi-tech automotive engineering consultancy services.

In a joint venture with ElringKlinger, Hofer Powertrain Products UK has been set up as a new UK subsidiary, operating out of the completed advanced engineering centre at the Solihull business park.

Hofer signed a 15-year lease on Unit 1 at the Connexion campus at Blythe Valley Park. Wakemans managed contractor Intex Projects to fit out the new 47,000ft² production development space which has been purpose built for the manufacture of a new hybrid transmission system.

The project was completed on time and within budget.
