Clients in the automotive industry are seeking a partner who can help them deliver a better vehicle more quickly and cost effectively than ever before. Whether for a member of the motorsport community seeking to gain a competitive edge on the racetrack or an automobile manufacturer seeking to increase their marketshare, Jacobs works with its customers – such as Ford Motor Company, General Motors, Chrysler, and Windshear – to clearly define their goals and develop an optimum solution based on their needs.
As a premier supplier of automotive test facilities, Jacobs provides a comprehensive range of services that includes site planning, analysis, design, installation/integration, construction, commissioning, operations, maintenance, and management. Drawing from our extensive experience as test facility operators, we provide a greater return on our client’s capital investment.
Through our unique operations and management approaches, Jacobs also implements processes to maximize facility availability and broker excess testing time – generating a revenue stream to offset operational costs while offering testing capabilities to other automakers and component suppliers. In addition, we supply engineering and technical support to augment clients' test operations and maintenance personnel.
