My company ITP Group Ltd has had the privilege of being a major supplier to the Dyson Automotive Group, in particular to the styling studio.
Over the last two years ITP Group Limited have supplied and installed a very advanced automotive styling studio at Dyson.
During this two year period we have had the pleasure of working with a very professional team starting with the purchasing, plant and installation engineers through to the design and Modeling team.
The way this project has been handled has in my opinion been a credit to all involved and I find it very sad that after achieving such very remarkable results in an amazingly short time that the project has been cancelled.
I sincerely hope I have the honour and pleasure to work again with such a body of highly professional individuals.

In an email on Thursday, Sir James revealed that Dyson was closing electric car facilities both in the UK and Singapore. The project employed 523 people, 500 of whom were in UK, and Sir James praised their "immense" achievements. "This is not a product failure, or a failure of the team, for whom this news will be hard to hear and digest," Sir James wrote. But, he said: "We have tried very hard throughout the development process, we simply can no longer see a way to make it commercially viable. "The Dyson automotive team has developed a fantastic car; they have been ingenious in their approach while remaining faithful to our philosophies."
