We are based in the UK and our expertise is in the design of parts, components, assemblies and structures for both the aircraft and automotive industries.
We are extremely well versed with using CAD systems in our design work. We provide 3D models which are fully parametric.


AB Designs tends to work primarily at the premises of our clients due to the highly sensitive nature of the projects that we undertake.
We have undertaken tooling design projects for BAe Systems & Air Bus. In the automotive sector our clients include Daewoo, TWR, Volvo, Rover, Aston Martin, Ford, Land Rover, Mini, Jaguar, VW, Bentley & Audi.
Our area of expertise is in developing Aluminium (pressing and casting) and steel structures for new car programmes from concept through to release of parts for production. AB Designs always endeavours to align their deliverables to reflect any cost, weight, package, manufacturing and production constraints as well as any specific performance targets of their clients.
For the structures we develop fixing and welding/riveting files and a location strategy for individual parts and assemblies. We have gained experience with carbon fibre material and have supported the development of door systems with some trim components for the Volvo C70.
