A signing ceremony was held in Shanghai on Friday, October 16, in the presence of The Right Honourable Lord Maude of Horsham and John Edwards, Her Majesty’s Consul General in Shanghai. Lord Maude remarked: “UKTI is proud to have helped bring about this superb example of the close links between China and the UK and their common focus on advanced manufacturing.”

Julian Turner, CEO of Westfield Sportscars Ltd said: “Westfield is delighted to be working with General Dynamic Aero Tech, we have lots of similarities and both companies are passionate about the Westfield product. There is genuine technological and advanced manufacturing crossover between the aerospace and sportscar sectors, and both Westfield and GDAT have a fantastic reputation in their local markets.”

Peter Jiang, President of General Dynamics Aero Technology, said: “GDAT is delighted to be working with Westfield because of their quality sportscar range, their advanced materials and technology in the vehicles.”
