Visteon Engineering Services are proud of their roots in Essex and were originally part of the Ford Motor Company’s UK operations.  The company has three sites in the UK – Chelmsford and Dunton in Essex as well as Binley in Coventry, with a diverse workforce made up of 360 highly-qualified technical and business people, demonstrating that Essex is an ideal recruiting ground for a hi-tech company like Visteon.

The company recently relocated to Chelmsford keeping Visteon in close proximity to customers, suppliers and business partners based in southeast Essex and mainland Europe. It also gives Visteon the opportunity to become part of the growing high-tech cluster in that part of the county.

Sophisticated electronics are an integral part of Visteon’s product development programme, with Chelmsford’s high-tech heritage giving them access to people and companies with the essential skills they need. Visteon take core electronics solutions and build them into products and applications that improve the performance of automotive components.

Visteon is one of the global success stories for business in Essex and the recent move will help them move even further ahead. Despite operating in a challenging business environment, Visteon feel positive about the future and the opportunities offered by Essex to both the business and its employees.
