About John McGavigan

JML is a manufacturer and supplier of decorative assemblies and interior parts for the global automotive industry, with a strong share of the European market. The business supplies Tier 1 automotive manufacturers such as Bosch, Visteon, Continental and Yazaki, with components widely used by global brand car makers producing affordable high volume cars, including Ford, GM, Jaguar/Landrover and Toyota.

JML ’s principal focus is the design, manufacture and supply of parts, such as dashboard appliqués, radio and heater control panels, decorative trims and instrument dials. Core skills include the latest high-volume screen printing technology, precision die cutting, thermo and hybrid forming techniques, injection moulding and complex assembly module management. The business also provides a logistics management service, enabling just-in-time supply to manufacturing facilities across the world.

As part of our strategic planning process we have been working closely with prospective investors over the past year and Maven stood out as an ideal partner through their professionalism, experience and management compatibility, and most importantly demonstrated that they share the same ambitions for our business. The Group is now well positioned to execute our growth and expansion strategy, designed to serve our customers and stakeholders alike, with expansion into Asia and the continued development of our manufacturing and product development operations in Scotland. The industries we serve look for long term partnerships and our relationship with Maven is very much in line with this.
