Porsche subsidiary MHP, headquartered in Ludwigsburg (Germany), has opened its first UK office.

MHP Consulting UK will primarily support local automotive manufacturers and suppliers from Birmingham and assist them in "optimising and digitalising processes along the value creation chain".

MHP said it relies on its unique consulting model: the symbiosis of management and IT consulting services.
It now operates 13 locations in Germany, Switzerland (Zurich/Regensdorf), the UK (Birmingham), the US (Atlanta), China (Shanghai) and Romania (Cluj-Napoca). This is the fifth location outside Germany.

Markus Kirchler, Germany-based partner responsible for the UK said: "The UK is an important place for the European automotive industry, and thus, also for us. A number of successful automotive manufacturers and suppliers and some important MHP customers are headquartered in the UK."

Local CEO Nathan Summers added: "Our new office in Birmingham is ideally located to enable us to provide high quality consulting services to our clients directly from the UK. This is a significant step for MHP and we're sure our clients will see the benefits."
