At Futuris, we appreciate the value of tailor-made styling for every customer, which is why we focus on also understanding their customers. Integrating styling intent into each stage of the development process ensures the correct level of craftsmanship on every product we design. With a broad suite of industry-leading tools, our designers can deliver on any customer brief, from 2D styling sketches to fully animated 3D digital models for prototyping, marketing or visualisation, whilst importantly maintaining the engineering functional integrity and manufacturing feasibility.

Whether it’s interior systems for emerging markets or specialist seating solutions for advanced and mature markets, at Futuris we work in partnership with our customers to provide best-in-class solutions to every engineering problem. We bring together some of the world’s best engineers with leading edge engineering and CAD tools, and we integrate this with an integrated approach to styling and manufacturing. The results speak for themselves as we continually set new benchmarks for quality, comfort, safety and reliability, whilst importantly meeting cost and engineering targets.

Futuris offers full trim development and prototyping across our global workshops to validate our designs. We have a team of experienced trimmers and trim technologists who are committed to ensuring a uniform level of craftsmanship and manufacturing feasibility that can be consistently duplicated on the production line. Using a variety of leading edge tools and applications, our team works with leathers, fabrics and many other materials to ensure customer expectations and requirements are met.

Futuris test and validation centres test and validate all facets of material, acoustic, environmental and ingress/egress properties. Our centres in North America, China and Australia provide assurance to our customers that the design will meet structural integrity, durability, safety, legal and performance requirements. With a wide range of best in class test equipment and know-how, this is a critical element of the ‘art to part’ solution that we provide to ensure customers get what they need, when they need it.
