New engineering design company, Performance Engineered Solutions (PES) Ltd has got off to a flying start with the sponsorship of British racing driver Paul Rees, who is driving the MTech Ferrari 458 Italia in the international FIA GT3 sports car championship.

PES, based at Rotherham’s Advanced Manufacturing Park (AMP), specialise in enhancing the performance of their client’s components, products and systems by delivering innovative engineering thinking and the latest design, materials, manufacturing and testing technologies – all key factors for success in the ultra competitive world of motorsport. 

As design director Dan Fleetcroft explains; “Motorsport is one of the most technically advanced industry sectors in the world, where the goal is to provide high performance solutions to challenging technical issues, often in very tight timescales. It is therefore the ideal environment to promote PES as we use the same technologies and principles as motorsport to deliver performance focused engineering solutions for our clients.” 

Motorsport is something Dan knows intimately about having been trained and mentored as a design engineer in Formula One for 15 years by John Barnard, one of F1’s all-time engineering greats. He has worked with numerous racing teams, including Ferrari, Arrows, Prost GP, Kenny Roberts Moto GP team and B3 Technologies Ltd design & engineering consultancy. Throughout this time he has also completed projects in multiple engineering environments outside of F1 including aerospace, automotive, medical technology, elite sport, renewable energy and product design.

PES provides a full range of specialist services including engineering design, analysis & testing and short run rapid manufacturing. It is currently working on a number of projects including; aerospace components, the aerodynamic and composite design for a new Moto2 racing bike, composite parts for a super lightweight, high performance road car, R&D projects in the automotive tyre sector, and the management of a major international engineering project. 

PES managing director Mike Maddock says; “The last 12 months have seen significant developments within all aspects of the business, and in order to take full advantage of the opportunities that are arising we have decided to separate the key business areas.

Such early indications seem to show that the company’s future business performance is likely to match that of the services and products they produce.
