City infrastructure in black & white

Automotive Industry Perspective

This Industry Perspective looks at the Automotive sector, where increasingly the parties to joint ventures are competitors - companies who historically would never have worked together but now need to pool their resources to face the new challenges in the industry and stay relevant.

Joint ventures within the automotive sector tend to be long term arrangements, often going to the heart of a major car manufacturer's product offering, rather than the single project approach which is more predominant in the infrastructure sector.

The infrastructure sector can learn from the automotive sector. Bringing together our clients from both respective industries can unlock considerable benefits and opportunities.
