Northern Automotive Systems (NAS UK) is a manufacturer and supplier specialising in decorative aluminium trim for the automotive industry based in Abergavenny.

NAS, recognising the need to elevate its operations, approached us to conceptualise and design a new state-of-the-art production facility planned for construction on a green field site on its existing campus.

The primary objective of the new facility was twofold: to serve as a showcase for NAS’s diverse range of products and production processes, appealing to both prospective and existing clients. Second, it aimed to bolster the company’s growth within the automotive industry.

In addition to functioning as a showroom, a primary driver of the scheme was providing visitors with the opportunity to view the various stages of production without entering the clean room areas.
