Supplying Pressings for New Electric Mercedes

Jenks & Cattell Engineering have been supporting the automotive industry with prototype and production volume metal pressings, welded assemblies and laser cut fabrications for five years, including for end users of Porsche, BMW, Jaguar Land Rover, Volkswagen, Nissan, DAF, Iveco and Renault.

We are please to expand our portfolio of end users with a new contract being awarded to us near the value of £1m for multiple metal pressings and welded assemblies being fitted into the 2025 model year Mercedes EQS on their new electric EVA body.

The metal parts will be manufactured utilising our 250t, 400t and 750t coil fed progression presses, robotic welders and complete functional assembly with nuts and studs, and we will ship a total of circa 200,000 components to our European customer throughout the project lifecycle which is expected to continue until 2030.

To support this project and our other electric vehicle projects, we have invested over £2.5m in 2022 alone for new and additional heavy progression presses, a machining centre and a new laser machine – so keep your eyes peeled for our new equipment arriving throughout the year.

For any manufacturing tips and costs for metal electric vehicle components, please get in touch with our sales and engineering team who have a vast experience in identifying the most efficient metal pressing route, including quality tools and tool routes with our tool manufacturers in China to ensure parts are fit for purpose in the prototype and PPAP stage prior to mainstream production in our Wolverhampton based factory.
