Jaguar Project 8

Some projects truly demonstrate the best attributes of KS Composites (KSC); the Jaguar Project 8 project must be amongst these.

Initially, through a chance conversation with the purchasing team responsible for sourcing parts and suppliers for this halo project for Jaguar, a problem was identified with the availability of a production solution for a particular element of the vehicle.

Following the meeting, KSC undertook to develop a novel process to satisfy this requirement; the response from the client was hugely positive and KSC were on board with the program.

Once in place, as the rest of the engineering and purchasing team got a view of the full range of KSC’s capabilities, the requirements started to ramp.

From cost effective, quick turnaround parts for mule testing and aero evaluation, through to a complete suite of panels and closures for the initial prototype run of vehicles, then ultimately nomination as a full production supplier of parts.

KSC were able to create a stand-alone team to support the production demand, and ultimately supplied high quality, paint and lacquer finished parts, on time for what would go on to become a truly record-breaking car.
