We deliver the industry’s most diversified portfolio of electrified propulsion projects, made possible by an award-winning team.

Without the depth and breadth of skills that our engineers exhibit or an insatiable desire for growth and continuous improvement at every level of the business, we wouldn’t be where we are today.

When you choose a career with Drive System Design, you’re choosing a future with electrifying potential. With high-impact projects across land, sea, air and space, your opportunities to shape some of the world’s most critical functions are endless.

Whether you join our team in Leamington Spa, U.K. or Farmington Hills, Michigan, you will quickly see what sets DSD apart and makes us who we are: technical expertise, incredible people and a strong business strategy that doesn’t believe in “impossible”.
