1 min read

Aurrigo International, a smart airside designer for the aviation industry, including automated vehicles, systems and software has officially hired its 100th employee.

The company has its workforce more than double since it listed on the Alternative Investment Market (AIM) in September 2022, and this figure is expected to grow further as demand for its Auto-DollyTug increases across the globe.

Neil Holloway is the company’s 100th employee, joining as Manufacturing Manager, responsible for helping scale production and achieving world class quality.

He brings with him over 45 years’ experience of working across the demanding sectors of automotive, aerospace and F1 for a string of high-profile suppliers, including Abbey Panels and Stadco.

During that time the former apprentice toolmaker has helped bring prototypes into high volume manufacture and helped the development of the Jaguar XJ220, Ford GT40 and Jaguar F Type cars.

“Whilst we are predominantly a technology business, people are still our biggest asset, so to take on our 100th member of the team is a really big moment for us,” said Professor David Keene, CEO and Founder of Aurrigo International.

“The last twelve months have seen demand increase rapidly for Auto-DollyTug, our autonomous, electric-powered tug. We are currently deploying these vehicles at six airports across the world, as organisations look to reduce costs, increase operational efficiencies, improve safety, and substantially cut their carbon footprint.”

He continued: “This is just the start and there are plenty of negotiations currently taking place to deploy our vehicles in other locations. All of this means we need to ramp up production and this is why Neil’s appointment is so important."

Neil Holloway said: “This is an exciting challenge and perfect for my expertise in taking prototype vehicles into series production. I knew immediately that Aurrigo was right for me during the factory tour. There is a real family-feel about the company, and it is a great opportunity for me to play a role in technology that has the potential to change the way airports operate going forward. I really wanted to be part of this journey.”
