Funding boost for design.

FUNDING from the West Midlands Technology Network (WMTN) has helped a Coventry engineering firm redesign one of its products.

Woodway Engineering specialises in the design and manufacture of audio and visual equipment for emergency vehicles used by the police, fire brigade and ambulance services.

One of the products that Woodway installs is the Opti-Link keypad, which controls auxiliary lighting and sirens.

Funding from WMTN enabled Woodway to enlist the Design Institute at Coventry University to redesign the control pad and improve it.

The WMTN is a collaboration of nine partners which collectively offers engineering product design and manufacturing consultancy, free-of-charge, to small to medium-sized enterprises.

It is part-funded by the European Regional Development Fund and Advantage West Midlands.
