Timoney is a technology and engineering services business. The company provides world class technical innovation, engineering, testing and manufacturing services to deliver ride & handling solutions to customers across the Defense, Fire and Construction sectors.
Over the last 50 years Timoney has developed capabilities in assessing vehicle dynamics that deliver improvements in ride and handling in the most demanding applications.
Identifying the root cause of a ride and handling problem requires a holistic review of the full vehicle, not just the suspension and driveline.
With our experience and vehicle knowledge, we can help you to understand the ride and handling problem through simulation and analysis – in accordance with recognised standards or your own in-house requirements.
There is a complex interrelationship between vehicle sub-systems and it can be difficult to balance the requirements of each element.
We understand this complex relationship because at some stage over the past 50 years, our expert staff have designed, specified and built practically every system on a vehicle. This experience also means we know when to partner with key suppliers and other industry experts.
Hybrid and electric vehicles create new challenges and opportunities. Removal of certain drivetrain systems, and sometimes human occupants, provides engineers the opportunity to develop solutions that might not work on other vehicles.
Timoney has been involved in a number of prestigious autonomous vehicle and vehicle electrification projects since 2000. Our solutions provide exceptional mobility and reliable operation over the toughest terrain; validated with extensive rig and vehicle testing.

Test and validation is an essential part of a design process. Interpreting results and validating your design against agreed criteria enables you to proceed to hardware with greater confidence.
