Daewoo's European Design and Development Center in Worthing, England, is preparing to open its doors to other auto companies.
Under the name WTC (Worthing Technical Center), the multicultural design and development team will offer complete product development support from the initial design strategy right through to series production.
Until now it has only done work for Daewoo or Daewoo affiliates.
State-of-the-art modeling and multimedia facilities will be offered, as well as full engineering, simulation and validation services.
Although owned by Daewoo, WTC is run independently. The success of its new cross-industry engineering service may, however, depend on who buys Daewoo Motor. Currently Ford, General Motors, Fiat, DaimlerChrysler and Hyundai have expressed an interest in acquiring the debt-laden Korean manufacturer.
