Millbrook Group, the leading independent vehicle test, validation and engineering service provider, is looking forward to a busy final few weeks of 2016. Millbrook will be hosting the first ever UK Automotive Testing Show, and celebrating another landmark moment of 2016 – with the opening of its first 4WD climatic chassis dynamometer facility.

On 8th and 9th December Millbrook will host the first-ever UK edition of the Automotive Testing Show. The event and conference will utilise the test tracks and two large exhibition halls at the UK proving ground. Millbrook is the ideal venue for an event of this type because exhibitors can use Millbrook’s substantial test facilities to demonstrate products and services to visitors. Exhibitors will be showcasing the full spectrum of test, measurement, simulation and development products. Vehicle mounted test equipment will be capturing data in real world scenarios on a variety of test tracks, displaying the results back at the exhibition stands.

Millbrook Group will be exhibiting and speaking at the show together with other companies in Spectris plc’s test and measurement business segment.

The timing of the show coincides with the opening of the new 4WD climatic chassis dynamometer. It is a key part of Millbrook’s substantial, ongoing investment in its powertrain facilities, and will be the leading facility of its type in the UK.

It will have a -20C to +50C climatic capability and the latest emissions sampling system meeting global regulations. The facility comes with additional soak space and a new control room and is designed for future expansion. The project has been completed on plan and on budget, and will be fully operational for customers from the beginning of 2017. The official opening will take place on 8th December.

Alex Burns, President of Millbrook says: “It has been a very busy 2016 for Millbrook and it’s nice to round off the year on a high. We’re delighted to be hosting the UK Automotive Testing Show, which will showcase the technologies with which Millbrook is so closely involved on a day to day basis. To be able to open our new 4WD dyno during the event is perfect timing.”
