Penso British Engineering

Body in White

At Penso, we have been leading the charge for lightweight vehicle body structures in steel, aluminium, magnesium and, increasingly, carbon fibre reinforced plastics.

A combination of investment in robotics and latest welding technologies, coupled with best practice manufacturing techniques and some of the best engineering professional in the world, has given us the capability to offer a truly integrated service for our global customer base.

This starts with initial design and simulation via our Finite Element Analysis department, through to product introduction and low to medium volume manufacturing.

We work hand in glove with the clients across the whole process to ensure production is completed on-time and to budget, often exceeding the original performance specifications agreed at the start of the project.

Body in white services include:

  • Front End
  • Rear End
  • Roof Structure
  • Underbody
  • Upper structure
  • Body Closures
  • Closure Hardware Systems
