Paintbox is a leading Tier 1 supplier for automotive OEMs and we offer a wide range of high-quality products and engineering capabilities.

Our products include exterior trim, front and rear fascia systems, body kits, closure systems, grille assemblies, roof systems and structural components.

Design & Development

Paintbox works with specialist technical partners to ensure that our customers’ stringent quality standards are met and that they receive the highest standard of service.

Our first step is to work closely with our clients and technical partners to establish a design proposition. On release of the relevant data, we typically assume full responsibility for turning the agreed design into a tool construction, working with our expert tooling partners.

Next, drawing on our multi-product sector expertise, we ensure the design can be manufactured to the required quality standard.

Rapid Prototyping

Paintbox works with a small group of expert rapid prototype partners to provide high-quality rapid prototyping services to OEMs and their Tier 1 suppliers.

These specialist partners use state-of-the-art technology to provide detailed components during the design and development phase of customer projects, helping to ensure high-quality results.

Tool Design & Manufacture

Paintbox partners with a select network of toolmakers to provide advanced tool design and manufacturing services.  

Our highly experienced tooling project managers co-ordinate all activities for our customers, overseeing the entire development process, from design to manufacture. This service includes onsite management support at the toolmaker locations and at customer production facilities.

By combining effective tool design data with the best manufacturing capabilities, we can develop prototype and production tools throughout Europe and Asia for our customers.

We use techniques, such as mould-flow analysis, computer-aided engineering and detailed General Assembly drawings analysis, to provide tooling solutions prior to major investment in tooling.
