Consulting and engineering services provider P3 Group today announced it has expanded its U.S. office network to include a new location in Greenville, S.C. and an increased presence in Dallas, Texas to meet growing demand from customers in the automotive industry.
Located at 1200 Woodruff Road, the new Greenville office will focus on manufacturing and operations improvement serving automotive OEMs, Tier 1 automotive suppliers and manufacturers. With a staff of approximately 20 employees, the P3 team will support a variety of projects in supply chain management and manufacturing including improving capacity, supplier quality, manufacturing efficiency and logistics.
In Texas, the P3 automotive team will join employees of P3’s existing telecommunications team where they will collaborate on emerging connected vehicle technologies. Centrally located at 1 Greystone Center, 3010 Lyndon B Johnson Freeway, the Dallas office will house nearly 70 P3 team members. In addition to vehicle connectivity, the Dallas team will work on initiatives from strategy and planning to engineering and operations, supporting a major local OEM and Tier 1 supplier. P3 also expects to hire 30 additional engineers and consultants by year-end.
“P3 continues to grow at a rapid pace and we are excited about the new location in Greenville and the expansion in Dallas. The Southeast continues to be an important region for manufacturing growth and P3 recognizes the importance of being located in such a critical area,” said Dr. Samit Ghosh, President and CEO of P3’s automotive group. “At the same time, Dallas is establishing itself as an industry hot bed for the convergence of the telecommunications and automotive industries. The increased P3 presence in the center of the growing connected vehicle arena strategically positions us for success.”
Dirk Bernhardt, CEO of P3’s telecommunications group agreed, “As the connected vehicle market grows, so does the need for integrated automotive services. P3 has worked alongside North America’s leading automakers for years, and our established telecommunications expertise in wireless device and application testing combined with automotive development puts us in a perfect position to answer the demand from our clients.”
