McLaren Releases Plans For Their New Composites Technology Center



McLaren Automotive is creating a new Composites Technology Center, which will house the research, development and manufacturing of the Monocell and Monocage. The Carbon fiber chassis is now being called the “future of McLaren cars.” Using advanced automated manufacturing techniques, the next generation Monocell will be developed in conjunction with the Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre.


At the launch event at the AMRC in Sheffield, Mike Flewitt, Chief Executive Officer of McLaren Automotive commented: “In 1981, McLaren was the first company to recognize the exceptional properties of carbon fiber, and we have designed the highly-technical material it to be at the heart of every McLaren road and racing car ever since. The now-iconic McLaren F1 was the world’s first road car to be built with a carbon fiber chassis and every car built more recently by McLaren Automotive has the same. Creating a facility where we can manufacture our own carbon fiber chassis structures is therefore a logical next step.”


The partnership between McLaren Automotive and the University of Sheffield’s AMRC creates the opportunity to expand and to provide more than 200 jobs through a combined investment. The benefits of the construction of this new facility are endless for both McLaren and the workforce!
