Neil oversees the financial, strategic, marketing, IT and HR elements of the business.
He joined GoodFabs in 2008 when several teams pulled out of F1 and sponsors reduced their commitment to many race series. He spent two years looking at how GoodFabs could serve other industries and made inroads into marine, oil and gas, aerospace and defence sectors.
In 2010, a new GoodFabs workshop was established in Mooresville, North Carolina to better serve the NASCAR market.
Following the entry of new teams into F1 and the renewed commitment of automotive companies such as Renault and Honda to the sport, he initiated significant investment in machining capacity to ensure that GoodFabs could readily control the speed and guaranteed supply of jigs, tooling and machined components.
Paul oversees the flow of work from initial order to final delivery with emphasis on quality and traceability.
Paul’s background in quality monitoring across several industries gives him a useful insight into how processes can be improved and adapted to ensure that tight timescales are met without compromising on customer requirements.
Didier De Lille
Consultant Research & Development Design Engineer
Didier works hand in hand with in-house designers and fabricators to turn around models and drawings for tooling and jigs to deliver parts in very short timeframes.
With an MSc degree in Racing Engine Design from Oxford Brookes University accredited by the Institution of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE) and Institute of Engineering and Technology, Didier has a thorough understanding of the theoretical and practical considerations associated with the design and functioning of racing engines, the use of different materials and the exhaust dynamics.
He has designed full F1 exhaust systems, including HRT’s Cosworth system in 2012 while at GoodFabs. Outside of GoodFabs, Didier has worked on a number of automotive, racing and specialist projects.
