McLaren Industries opens R&D facility

By Lindsey Anderson20 October 2015

In an effort to increase services to its customers in the U.S. and North America, McLaren Industries has expanded. The U.S.-based manufacturer of OEM and aftermarket tracks and tires recently opened a new research and development facility in Jacksonville, FL.

Completed in September, the research and development facility features a large footprint with state-of-the-art features designed specifically to test McLaren’s range of offerings for telehandlers, skid-steers, backhoes, track loaders and more. It features various terrains – from grass and gravel to concrete and asphalt – so researchers can gauge how different designs and compounds react to each surface.

“This will be an extremely valuable tool to support our OEM clients for developing and testing new track and tire designs. We develop our products and get results for our clients in real-time,” said Poj-Piman Nawadhinsukh, who will be overseeing the facility and engineering team. “Everything is much more visible and tangible here.”

Nawadhinsukh has 30 years of global experience in senior management for multi-national companies in various industries.

“Appointing a senior executive with a proven track record to lead our research and development center in Jacksonville is one of the many steps we have made toward continuing our worldwide success, and making McLaren a truly global company,” said R.J. Doyle, CEO of McLaren Industries. “Nawadhinsukh will have a special advantage in coordinating our international efforts to develop products that meet the needs of our ever-growing business here in North America.”
