iO Associates have partnered with an award-winning space company in Oxford as they plan to increase their capabilities by bringing on additional Mechanical Design Engineers to join their ever-successful design team.

My highly ambitious client is looking to become the globally leading supplier of deployable structures for the satellite industry whilst also provide highly competitive antenna solutions.
