CCL Design
Intelligent Decorative Technologies

The world of mobility is changing. Major advances in STEM technologies, consumer demands and a move towards sustainable, circular economies mean the automotive industry is transforming at an unprecedented rate. Key trends are revolutionising automotive interiors, with the potential for a truly unique cabin experience on the horizon.

Our Intelligent Decorative Technology division partners with OEMs and Tier 1 suppliers to support and stay ahead of these trends, creating innovative product solutions for automotive interiors.

In January 2022, CCL Design acquired leading automotive component supplier, McGavigan, forming our new Intelligent Decorative Technology division, building on our existing product range and presence within the automotive sector.
