First female head of manufacturing for Magtec

Magtec, the Sheffield-based designer and manufacturer of electric vehicle drive systems, has appointed its first female head of manufacturing.

Mandy Delaney brings 25 years of experience in the vehicle manufacturing industry, most recently including management positions at bus maker Optare, McLaren Automotive and coach builder Alexander Dennis.

In her new role, Ms Delaney will oversee manufacturing for Magtec’s existing and new electric vehicle programmes in Britain and overseas.

This includes the electric drivetrain for the world’s first autonomous 26t truck.

The head of manufacturing is focused on increasing volumes, maintaining quality and reliability, building supply chains and engaging with employees across Magtec’s design and manufacturing sites in Sheffield and Rotherham.

“Mandy Delaney has all the manufacturing expertise and experience to help us to meet growing customer demand,” said founder and MD Marcus Jenkins.

“Orders are increasing and climate change is rising up the social and political agenda. We are investing for future growth and are delighted to welcome Mandy to our team.

“We have many opportunities for ambitious and energetic people who want to grow with our business. We have the world knocking on our door and we need to recruit.”
