Intrepid Control Systems enjoys rapid growth since establishing UK office in Warwickshire
2nd August 2018
Intrepid Control Systems, a global provider of high technology software and hardware, including autonomous vehicle solutions, has exceeded all expectations since launching its UK office in Warwickshire in January 2018. Thanks to comprehensive support from chartered accountants and business advisers, Harrison Beale & Owen (HB&O), Intrepid was able to quickly establish its UK office at the MIRA Technology Park in Nuneaton, and has been rapidly building its customer base ever since.
Intrepid set up the UK office following growth in demand from UK customers, many of whom are based in the Midlands. The company primarily works with automotive OEMs in developing new vehicles, providing network-based tools (similar to black boxes) to improve vehicle hardware and software.
The move comes at a time when vehicles are becoming ever more complex, and the industry is moving toward connected and autonomous vehicles. As a result, vehicles require more data analysis before production to ensure high performance and quality, making these tools increasingly important. Intrepid’s data logging and diagnostics tools help engineers identify complex issues that would otherwise go undetected.
HB&O worked with Carl Hills, the UK Managing Director to set up the company from scratch and establish all the necessary compliance processes and management systems needed to get the business off to a great start. This has included setting up cloud accounting processes and payroll systems, through to specialist pensions advice and creation of employment contracts.
Mr Hills said: “Since establishing our UK office, we have seen an increase in sales that has exceeded all our expectations.
“HB&O has provided high quality, responsive support throughout, which has enabled us to focus on our customers rather than diverting too much attention on the administrative aspects of establishing a business.” he added.
Phil Ewing, Coventry Director, HB&O said: “Carl and his team have been incredibly focused from day one and have taken a very proactive approach to working with our team to establish their UK office. It is particularly pleasing to see Intrepid make such a promising start in the UK and we look forward to working with their team as they continue to grow.”
